Japanese Charity Plans Aids Home

Sheila C. Kulubya

Ashinaga, a Japanese charity organisation, plans to build a modern home for AIDS orphans in Uganda.

The home, to be named Rainbow House, will be built at Nansana on the outskirts of Kampala.

Orphans will receive professional counse ling, emotional as well as material support at the home. Ashinaga's Director of Public Relations, Okazaki Yukichi, said construction begins in a couple of months. The house will be complete in November.


"Uganda has the highest number of AIDS orphans in Africa, we want to raise awareness about the plight of these children and help them live normal lives," Mr Okazaki said at the weekend at Botanical Gardens during a party and day out for more 300 orphans. Ashinaga is currently supporting 375 orphans.
