Tell me more about your campaign.

The need for the health and holistic care that we provide has been so great, that we have run out of room at our current location. With the increase in awareness of our services in the community more patients are coming to Kawempe Home Care for help. It is important we continue to be proactive in encouraging people in the community to come to us but we are in need of larger premises to meet the community's needs. 

What is the impact of your campaign?

Kawempe Home Care has cared for a cumulative total of 3,509 HIV/AIDS clients as of the end of 2014.

We currently help:
  • 1,774 active clients of whom 68% are female, 32% male. Of these 198 are children under 18 years.
  • 2498 people were counselled and tested for HIV of which 11.6% were positive and enrolled into care.
  • 1,311 clients who are receiving Antiretroviral Therapy (ART), and 20 clients are currently on TB treatment.
  • 26 clients who have cancer and are receiving palliative care.
  • 198 women who are on our Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission program. We were very pleased that last year, 100% of the children born on our program were HIV negative.
  • 240 Orphan & Vulnerable children (OVC) participate in our OVC programs. 145 children receive educational support and 27 are in our Day care program. 
Help us to care for even more patients by donating towards our new facility.
