HIV/AIDS AWARENESS, CARE AND SUPPORT

Lwengo community is highly affected by HIV/AIDS whereby 50% of the families are headed by single parents, mostly mothers following the death of their partners due to HIV/AIDS.
Some families are headed by children or very old grandparents who are less or non productive. On average 90% of the families have 1-3 orphans either inherited or left behind by dead parents some of who are HIV positive from their late or bed ridden mothers.
LWERUDESO therefore is playing a major role in

  • Creation of awareness about HIV/AIDS facts
  • Counseling and referral for HIV testing and medication for infected people
  • Psychosocial support, provision of relief to the more vulnerable infected and affected people and their families
  • Education support to orphans and vulnerable children of infected and affected people
  • Provision of safe and clean water to the infected and affected people with their families
  • Provision of income generation activities to infected people and affected families
