Uzima In Our Hands is an IOW based Charity supporting Uzima Orphan & Day Care Centre which is located in the Samia district of Western Kenya
Here 316 children are provided with a basic education and two meals a day. Many of them have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. They may also have Special Needs or HIV/AIDS themselves.
Without the assistance of Uzima there was an extreme burden put on the families left to care for them. Many suffered and died as a result of neglect due to poverty in their community.
