Grandmother of seven orphans relies on help from Reach Out

KAMPALA, UGANDA — Fatuma Nabalence has buried three of her children who died of AIDS. They left her with seven grandchildren to take care of.  She herself is old now and HIV-positive.

Fatuma relies on the assistance of Reach Out, a Catholic charity that cares for the elderly. Reach Out is able to do its work because it receives funding from the US government through the President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief.
