We're excited to have hosted our first on-site HIV/Aids Awareness & Prevention Day this week
at the Musana workshop! One of our initiatives in Uganda is providing disease prevention
for our artisans as a part of our healthcare program.
The day started with a lesson about HIV and what women can do to
prevent themselves and their children from getting it.
Afterwards, each of our artisans received private testing and results counseling.
Since getting tested often requires expensive travel costs and taking time off work,
we're excited to be able to provide our artisans with such important preventative healthcare.
A big thanks goes to our local healthcare partners in Uganda who helped us make it happen!
