Without food there is no life

Margaret and her children

Nankya Margret is a widow living in Kyenshama, Kinuuka Sub - County. She lost her  husband in 2012 and left her with  a 3 months old baby and other two young boys one is 6 years and another is 2 ½ years. Her husband died of HIV/AIDS and infected her too.

After the death of her husband, she went for HIV test and the results were positive and she was enrolled on drugs.

In her own words of appreciation she said, I had abandoned taking ARVS due to lack of food and capacity to look after my children. This greatly weakened my life and I had decided to abandon my family, but after a jingle from our Local chairman that RACOBAO distributes food to the breast feeding mothers infected with HIV. They gave me 50 kilograms of maize flour and 10 kilograms of  beans for the start and encouraged me to visit a health centre 111 in  order to test and know my CD4 count, when they visited back in January 2013 I was given more food. This food has helped me a lot together with my family because I have gained energy and able to do work for my children and to continue with my ARVs.

Thanks to Global giving and RACOBAO who brings hope to the community.
