Guiding Light Orphans
Strengthening Child Health and Reducing Infant Mortality Rates
Help Us fund our clinic
Please help us support our clinic by making a donation!
GLO’s mission is to provide support to HIV/AIDS orphans and critically vulnerable children and their caretakers in rural Uganda. The free, quality, basic healthcare, training and skills for self-sustainability GLO provides has already contributed towards breaking the vicious cycle of chronic hunger and poverty.
creating sustainable change
If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Not only do we provide direct aid, but we also build on-going, community-owned systems that maintain the changes. We strive to improve and empower the lives of children in Uganda.
how we help
GLO holds medical camps approximately twice a year in local villages of the Masindi district. The camps focus on education, disease prevention and treatment, and maternal, newborn, and child health and wellness services.
VILLAGE HELP TEAM (VHTs)
GLO’s strategy in managing disease outbreak is to train our Village Health Teams on a regular basis on how to effectively seek out patients and get them proper care.
Knowledge about the epilepsy epidemic is Uganda is very limited and people are very fearful of it. GLO has decided to raise awareness and understanding of epilepsy to improve acceptability, treatment, and services for patients, families, and caregivers.
GLO HEALTH CLINIC
Guiding Light Orphans was generously donated two rooms in the local church in Nyantonzi that have been renovated into our first medical clinic. It will provide basic services to anyone living within the area that we serve.
