HEVIA Uganda is a local nonprofit founded in 2013 which works to bring healthcare to rural communities in Uganda. HEVIA Uganda was founded through the diligent work of local youth and led by Mr. Deus Mwijuke and has become a major force in the region. Together they take a holistic approach to providing clean, dignified, environmentally friendly, and well-resourced spaces for education, health, and business. In our collaboration with HEVIA Uganda, our sponsored students receive healthcare from the local health facilities and have safe classroom environments. Additionally, we are currently collaborating with HEVIA Uganda to expand healthcare programs which address major concerns, such as HIV testing and management, as well as reproductive and maternal health. Your donations contribute to our expansion of local health facilities and these new programs. HEVIA Uganda and JOCF thank you for these contributions.
