Kawempe Home Care (KHC) is a community based, non-governmental organisation in Uganda that began its journey in 2007.
It provides medical and care to disadvantaged people living with HIV/AIDS, TB and or cancer; an education for children who are orphaned or vulnerable; our hostel provides children with cancer, access to specialist treatment; and empowering clients through our income generating programs.
A Must Have Accessory
A face mask is just one tool in fighting the spread of the Covid19 virus. Staying inside and physically distancing is ideal, but if you can't do that, wearing a face mask provides a physical barrier to the virus.
And if you are going to wear a mask why not make it a fashion accessory.
Our tailoring team are making and selling cotton masks that are stylish, sustainable, washable and therefore reusable with a triple layer and at a very reasonable price.
Our masks sell for 5,000 UGX or US$2.00 each (but it does not include DHL delivery costs). However, if you order 1000 masks you will only pay for 50% of the delivery costs.
The money raised from the masks will provide our tailors with an income to support their families and also help us to provide the basic needs for the children’s hostel.
If you would like to help us to distribute our masks or would like to keep family and friends safe by giving them a mask, please contact Ruth at email@example.com with the number of masks you would like and where you would like them shipped to and Ruth will then provide you with a quote and payment options.
Please Support Our Food Campaign
The world is facing many challenges not only the continuing Covid19 health pandemic but also the financial impact is hurting many people. Understandably the focus for most people is trying to cope with their own situation. However, it is felt even more keenly by non profit organisations that rely on support from friends and partners to continue programs for those in desperate need.
We are in urgent need of food support at the New Hope Children's hostel for the children with cancer and their caregivers. It is vital that these children have access to 3 meals a day so that their bodies can sustain them during their treatment.
It doesn't take much for example the cost of a cup of coffee at a café could provide one of our young children and their caregiver with 3 basic meals a day.
Your family can help feed another family.
