This is a video of Ugandan dancing as our welcome to the community where we were working. In the summer of 2008, myself and 11 others from the church community travelled to Uganda to do some missionary work. While there we built a classroom for the local school of Kyoga C/U and also ran a kids club to educate the pupils there about God in their lives. Plus, we also taught English to the adults and teachers. We spent two weeks there and most of us were completely blown away by it all. This is the welcome we got when we arrived! I love the place – the people are so loving and accepting of anyone there and we were actually given gifts on the last day there! They, who can afford next to nothing were giving us gifts…

Six areas in the three districts of Bushenyi, Luwero and Ntungamo were recipients of these nets in a combined 4500 net distribution. All are high-risk malaria areas with endemic malaria and seasonal epidemic outbreaks. Kyamuhunga and Kikwamba were the targeted areas in Bushenyi. Pregnant women, under 5′s and people living with HIV/Aids (PLWHA) were the recipients. These are the groups most vulnerable to malaria attack. The nets were distributed by Uganda Red Cross community volunteers alongside ongoing URCS malaria control and HIV/home based care activities. Malaria education and net use training were an integral part of the distribution. There was a bednet demonstration and malaria information session covering what the nets are, why they are needed and how to use them. Net usage follow-up will aim to ensure complete and correct net use.

HELP US NOW – because there are no second chances! Did this story – and the idea of countless women like Juliet being put at risk for HIV/AIDS – move you? Filmed in Kenya and Uganda, this short documentary provides a snapshot of the Bush administration’s abstinence-only approach to HIV prevention as part of its global HIV/AIDS assistance. But according to many studies, including two recent reports from the General Accounting Office and the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, we know that abstinence-only programs do not work. Abstaining from Reality examines how these ideologically-driven programs are actually endangering the lives of the people they’re supposed to be protecting, while wasting hundreds of millions of dollars. Population Action International is working to achieve HIV policies that are culturally relevant, grounded in scientific evidence, and that successfully protect people worldwide from contracting this fatal disease.
