Mulago Positive Women's Network Announce Their "BONO" Bracelet Fundraiser to Benefit HIV+ Women in Uganda
Date:6/30/2010

directly to the women who make the craft items.


UPDATE

Last year, through their "UNITED FOR UGANDA" fundraising program ( http://www.prweb.com/releases/2009/02/prweb2150854.htm ), the MPWN was able to raise over $7,000 for their membership - all HIV+ women living in extreme poverty in Uganda. The women use this money to provide additional nutrition and educational resources for their children in an effort to provide a better future for them.

Since the inception of the MPWN website in February 2008 ( http://www.prweb.com/releases/2008/02/prweb700344.htm ), more than $12,000 has been raised to support these women in their efforts to engender a sustainable future for themselves and their families. It is projected that by the end of 2010, that amount will easily surpass $20,000.

If interested in participating in the "UNITED 4 UGANDA" program, please visit our website at www.mpwn-uganda.org or call (512) 992-7782.


BACKGROUND

The MPWN was started in January 2004 to address the special needs of HIV+ women in Uganda. Based in Kampala Uganda, the MPWN functions as a support network to assist its members in "living positively" with HIV/AIDS. The MPWN is affiliated with TASO (The AIDS Support Organization -- www.tasouganda.org) of Uganda -- one of the longest established and most prestigious African-initiated AIDS organizations in the continent.
