HIV/AIDS has a devastating effect on families.

Kawempe Home Care (KHC) is a community based organisation in Uganda that provides holistic home care to people living with TB, HIV /AIDS and or cancer and it is committed to preventing the further spread of TB and HIV in the community. KHC is unique in its approach, providing not only the medical treatment but psychological, emotional and social support for clients they treat.

‘I went first to the hospital but if it’s not your day nobody cares for you. I wasn’t getting better, but thanks to God I met Joyce from KHC. I am still quiet weak but the doctor from KHC comes to visit me at home three times per month. People at KHC do their work with one heart, and you do not find such a place anywhere else.’

'One day volunteers from KHC came to our place as someone told them that my husband and I were HIV positive and they came to see if we were alright. Soon we realised that the best thing for us was to start taking the treatments from KHC. When ever I need assistance I receive it.’
Prossy & her husband are HIV positive. They have 7 children.

‘The biggest problem I had was Derek not going to school. However, Kawempe Home Care is paying for his school fees and now he can attend classes. He is very happy and I am happy too.'

Become a Volunteer

'I spent two weeks volunteering at KHC and gained a lot of interesting experiences. I got an insight into the different departments, was working in the pharmacy, doing tests in the laboratory and accompanying the clinicians on home visits. Being part of KHC and seeing how clients are treated and supported was a great experience! '
