Ruparelia Foundation and Sanyu FM have donated mattresses and 300 reusable sanitary pads to 120 children living with HIV/AIDS at UCARE international charity home in Luzira.
The donations are in line with the marking of the international world Aids day commemorated every 1st of December.
The day has been marked under the theme is, “Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic: Resilience and Impact”, which will focus on creating global solidarity among people who live with HIV and also seek to destigmatize the health issue.
The team was led by General Manager of Sanyu FM Chris Ireland, programs manager Roger Mugisha and other employees. Most of the children became orphans after HIV/AIDs claimed their parent’s lives.
UCARE taps and rejuvenates the natural talents of children and in addition to generate finances to sustain the Home welfare.
