Welcome to our blog!

We are a small charity operating in Uganda. We are interested in helping the tiny fraction of the Ugandan population who have been discriminated against and denied access to the healthcare system – the sex workers in the red light districts.

Please take the time to look through our pages and posts to find out what we are about. Your feedback and comments will be greatly appreciate, as well as your support.

With thanks,
