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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
It is amazing what $10 will buy!
3 nutritious meals for a child for one week whilst staying at the New Hope Children's hostel.
How Your Donation Can Go That Much Further.
These are still challenging times for us all, and we hope you’re in good spirits and health! 2021 brings hope that a vaccine will be rolled out throughout the world and it is hoped that the developing countries are not left behind.
Right now, KHC is doing everything possible to sustain daily operations and provide services to our community. While there’s a lot of uncertainty, now, more than ever, our New Hope Children's hostel for children with cancer, who are from disadvantaged rural families, need our help to ensure the children can continue to access cancer treatment. And we need your help so we can continue to provide them with food support during this crucial stage of their treatment.
GlobalGiving from 8 to 12 March is matching donations at 50% up to $50. So if you have $10 you can donate that will certainly put a smile on one of our little patient's faces.Find out how:
