Kamwokya Christian Caring Community (KCCC) is community and faith-based Non Government Organization (NGO) that was established in 1987 to mitigate the psychosocial, medical, physical and economic impact of HIV/AIDS on the deprived people of Kamwokya community and the surrounding areas. Through voluntary efforts of the members of small Christian communities locally known as “Obubondo,” a care and support project was started for persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLHAs) and education support for children orphaned by the disease. The project also sensitized Kamwokya community members on the root causes and effects of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The overriding aim of the sensitization was to reduce the stigma that was attached to the disease at that time and to challenge the people in the area to change their behavior so as to avoid acquiring the disease.
Today, KCCC continues to implement programs and activities in Kampala and Wakiso districts using a multi-sectoral approach that seeks to mobilize the community for a holistic social service provision, builds on community strength and looks at the root causes of problems, TB, HIV/AIDS included and utilizes the community strength to overcome these problems.
Currently KCCC program focuses on four strategic areas: Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC), Youths and Sexual Reproductive Health Rights, Organisation Development and Health Care; Health Care is the heart of the program, under which, a big ART project is being implemented, TB management, maternal Child Health Care, and treatment of other general illnesses.
