Meet Julius, in the pink pants. He lives with his grandfather (not shown). Julius is HIV+. When he gets sick, he has to walk to the hospital in Tororo. The hospital is at least 10 miles away. His family doesn’t have the money for transport, and his grandfather is old.
Hospice Tororo staff found him in the hospital and have added him to their roster so they can help him. We visited him in October, and the psycho-social staff gave him a photograph of himself – the first one he’s ever had.
When you purchase items from the Ndoto Collection Store, you help us help kids like Julius through Ten Eighteen, as well as the ladies in our two co-ops.
It’s Give Back Tuesday! Giving back has never been so fun!
