HIV/AIDS and Malaria Medications for Bright Kids

Hi everyone! We will be traveling to Entebbe, Uganda this summer after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh. We will be living and working with Bright Kids Uganda (BKU) to promote health and HIV/AIDS education for the children at the orphanage. These funds will directly go to the BKU staff, who will buy HIV/AIDS and malaria medications for the children that are in need.

Even a small contribution for the medications will make a difference in these children's lives, health, and community. The malaria tablets are needed by everyone at the organization, and the HIV/AIDS medications go hand-in-hand with the Antiretroviral Therapy medications the children have to take every day. We really appreciate your consideration for donating. Please reach out to us with any questions!

Bright Kids Uganda is an organization committed to providing education, shelter, and food to orphans in Uganda. Bright Kids Uganda caters to street kids, HIV/AIDS orphans, and children in Internally Displaced People's Camps (IDPC). BKU has a very close relationship with the University of Pittsburgh and its professors. It was founded by a Ugandan native and Pitt alumna.
