Mama’s Club, Uganda

P1000153These women stand in solidarity together at Mama’s Club in Uganda, an award-winning self-help collaborative of HIV-positive mothers. Created by a local pediatrician, Dr. Lydia Mungherera, the club is not a religious group but many participants and supporters draw deeply on faith issues, even as they  struggle against prejudice and stigma caused by religious views that blame sin for their disease–and often their children’s deaths.  Click image above to visit the Club’s website, or learn more at the Club’s Facebook page:
