Our mission is to build the capacity of the people of Lwala to advance their own comprehensive well-being.
Leah has been a long-time beneficiary of Lwala Community Alliance in many regards. As an HIV-positive woman who is also suffering from TB, she regularly participates in the HIV support programs, receives her ARVs from the hospital, and is treated for opportunistic infections that result from her condition. Not one to hide in the corner because of her status, Leah has been outspoken in the community about living with HIV including encouraging people to be tested to learn their status and advocating good hygiene practices for people living with HIV as a WASH Trainer-of-Trainers (TOT). Through the WASH training, Leah became instrumental in starting up a group that is currently making liquid soap and disinfectant at the hospital for sale to villagers, schools, and other facilities.
You can help us sustain our existing programs and roll out further initiatives by making a donation now.

The IZUMI Foundation recently awarded Lwala with a grant to expand our hospital infrastructure and provide additional on-site housing for our clinical providers. This investment will allow Lwala to make great strides toward our recently-launched "Thrive Thru 5" initiative, which is a project to cut under-5 mortality in our region in half by the end of 2016.
