Since its inception in February 2008, ICOD Uganda has worked hand in hand with the district local governments, civil society organizations, local leaders, foreign and local partners and communities to map out best ways of responding to the effects of the AIDS pandemic in the district. In carrying out most its activities, the organization works with the relevant stakeholders for efficiency and effectiveness.
Over the last year ICOD has been able to:
• Conduct an enumeration and needs assessment survey to establish in depth the effects of HIV/AIDS on children in the district, and to gather data which has helped in the design of appropriate, relevant and sustainable projects.
• Support orphans with scholastic materials like uniforms, books, pencils and pens.
• Distribute food supplies to vulnerable households in Lyantonde district.
• Distribute seeds for farming to 20 vulnerable families and 3 farmers groups in Lyantonde and Masaka districts in its efforts to build a food secure community.
• Extended health services support to over 3000 people in its annual health outreach organized in partnership with University Bible Fellowship
