THE STORY:

This February, I will be joining the efforts of the Ugandan non-profit group Rescue Widows, Elderly, Youth & Orphans with AIDS (RWEYOWA), based in the rural outskirts of Kampala, Uganda. Founded in 2003, RWEYOWA implements HIV/AIDS education with a focus on prevention and effective care, combined with personal clinical support and treatment for those suffering from HIV/AIDS. They gain their strength from an unparalleled understanding of the needs of their community, and the effect AIDS continues to have on its members.

At least 1 out of every 16 adults in Uganda is living with HIV/AIDS, and this prevalence rate does not include the scores of youth and orphans under the age of 15. With the second highest birthrate on the planet, 50% of Uganda’s population is under the age of 15, and the number of these children born HIV+ is both staggering and seemingly endless. The key to stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS, a disease that is 100% preventable, is through educating the people of the world in proper prevention tactics, as well as providing clinical support for those living with the disease. This is RWEYOWA’s mission in Uganda, and with my experience and my passionate commitment to the cause, I could not be more proud to be joining them!
