Food brings hope to the clients

Nakayiwa Resty is a widow with 5 children and renting a small house in Lyantonde town. She has been on ARVS since 2006. She faces the challenges of; infectious diseases, loss of energy and drug related complications stemming from lack of food.  She had never received food aid from any organization yet she is very needy with no garden to plant crops, she thrives on the little earnings she gets from digging and washing clothes for neighbors. The situation becomes more complicated when she falls sick with no body to help her and the children.

She is grateful for the food she was to receive as it would boost her immunity,  feed her family for some days and reduce the risks she gets by taking ARVS with out sufficient food. She thanked Global giving for the help rendered.

She appealed to the organization to at least have that offer twice a month and to increase on the ratio.


Robert  Kacwa is a father of 4 children. Him and the wife are HIV positive and on ARVS. Fortunately none of his children is HIV positive. He has been on ARVS for 4 years with no serious complications. He has been receiving food supplements for the past 3 years composed of maize flour, beans and sometimes oil from RACOBAO.

He appreciated the diet as it boosts his immunity, makes him more healthy and energetic and taking ARVS to him is no problem.  He was grateful to global giving for the funds and support.

He requested the organization to increase on the quantity of food supplied and to make it more regular.
