Japanese Charity Plans AIDS Home in Uganda

March 21, 2003

The Japanese charity organization Ashinaga plans to build Rainbow House, a home for AIDS orphans, at Nansana on the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda. Orphans will receive professional counseling, emotional and material support at the home. Construction will begin in a couple of months, said Okazaki Yukichi, Ashinaga's director of public relations. The house will be complete in November. "Uganda has the highest number of AIDS orphans in Africa; we want to raise awareness about the plight of these children and help them live normal lives," Okazaki said. Ashinaga is currently supporting 375 orphans.
