International Work-Camp on Orphansaeuro Care and s
Description: Bamusuuta childrenaeuros home started as an initiative way back in 1988 after realizing that a number of orphans were increasing at a fast rate as a result of the concluded 1980-1985 guerrilla war and the high prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS. The orphanage originated from UWESO group Kiboga, which was a group of women and men who are still members of the organization up to now. The initial number of children was 40. Presently, the scope of service has been extended to cover 100 orphans who stay with their guardians/parents in different homes. The construction of the accommodation structure at this place has been partially done as an extension for the orphanage and we are very optimistic that it will be accomplished accomplishment through the workcamp in 2018.
