HIV/Aids Widow Gets House From Actionaid

Edgar R. Batte
For a moment, she stood still and at as loss for words. A visibly excited Hadijjah Nakito expressed joy as tears rolled down her cheeks.
Nakito, an HIV/Aids widow living in Makerere had her house washed away by heavy rains and has since been living in a shack but Actionaid International Uganda came to her rescue and constructed her a house, which was officially handed over to her last Thursday.
Nakito revealed the painful experience of life without a home and 11 members of the family to fend for.
The Country Director Amanda Serumaga said Nakito's three bed roomed house, would help her fend for her family as a source of income through renting out the boys quarters.
"This is part of our concerted efforts to work hand in hand with community based organisation in trying to eradicate poverty," she said. Actionaid is visiting different local communities in Uganda under the Get on board, back on the road dubbed campaign.
