February 18, 2013 Country Uganda Filed under HIV and care 0 Comments

People living with HIV in harbour landing sites of Kaberamaido district, eastern Uganda are set to benefit from an agriculture project that will enable them to grow their own food.

A farming field is being introduced by the Teso Diocese Planning and Development Office (TEDDO) to improve the nutrition and welfare status of people living with HIV in the area.

Speaking to Etop radio, Amos Okello, a programme coordinator at TEDDO, said the project will enable people to produce their own produce such as tomatoes, onions, cabbages and other vegetables.

The project is also expected to help households improve their livelihoods, Okello added.
