You can help the hundreds of Ugandan children affected by malnutrition and HIV/AIDS.
In the village of Papoli, Uganda, increasing food prices and the HIV/AIDS epidemic are having a devastating effect on children. Children comprise over 65% of Papoli's population, and more than 40% of them have been affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Food insecurity and malnutrition are rampant.
The Robert H. Cooley Pediatric Clinic in Papoli provides a safe house for children affected by HIV/AIDS. There, children in need receive nutrition rehabilitation, medications, immunizations, and treatment for other illnesses. These children remain enrolled in the program until they have returned to health. Clinic staff give daily nutrition and health talks for caregivers, and make home visits to follow up on the child's progress.
