Kitojo integrated Development Association (KIDA) and African Health Development (AHD) launched their collaboration on the 20th November 2015 with a couple of activities that took place at KIDA premises. The function was punctuated with giving out of vegetable seedlings to the people living with HIV/AIDS who get their treatment and therapy from KIDA Hospital. The HIV/AIDS clients also walked away with well wrapped parcels which contained clothes, bags, shoes, beddings among other things. A few selected Orphans and vulnerable children supported by KIDA also took part in the occasion.
KIDA Director Rev Ezra Musobozi mentioned that partnerships are very welcome as long as there is no deviation from the broader vision of ‘empowered people taking care of their own lives’. With a mission of promoting quality healthy practices at household and community levels for improved nutrition, maternal, neonatal and child health, AHD blends in well since the two organisations majorly focus on empowering lives in the rural community.
The occasion was graced by the Bishop’s delegate Rev Stephen Kalyebara who hailed KIDA Director for the developmental projects in the community like the Savings and Credit organisation, the Hospital, vocational skills program and others. He also thanked AHD Director Mr Churchill Bacwa for the great love he has for the people and most especially the vulnerable groups.
The area leaders were also part of the function such as the LC1 chairperson, the LCV kabarole, the area counsellor and Board members of both KIDA and AHD.
