Rotarians help orphans of HIV/AIDS in Uganda
M ore than 1.2 million of Uganda’s children have lost both parents to HIV/AIDS.
The Rotary Foundation and its partners are providing health care, and hope for the future, to over 500 orphans in the country.
“Despite the fact that their parents died, they wish to have the best life that we all have. So we give them assistance,” says Joseph Matovu, a senior clinic officer and member of the Rotary Club of Kalisizo, Uganda.
The efforts of Rotarians in Matovu's community is just one example of Rotary's work in the disease prevention and treament area of focus. You can help support these efforts by making a special gift to The Rotary Foundation in honor of World Health Day on 7 April.
Direct your Annual Fund gift to SHARE, to help support the local and international activities of clubs in your district, or direct your entire gift to the disease prevention and treatment area of focus fund, to be spent on quality disease prevention projects identified and implemented by Rotarians around the world.
Either way, your contribution will be used to fund high impact, sustainable solutions to our world’s most pressing needs.
