Uganda reportedly has an estimated 3.5 million orphaned children with up to 790000 children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and other killer diseases like Cholera & tuberculosis. In Uganda, around 12% of children are orphans who have lost both or one of their parents due to several reasons including weak family support networks, high price tag on medical treatment, poor quality & access to education, family violence & conflicts, limited adoption options, high maternal mortality rates, early pregnancies and also witchcraft.
Apart from the orphans, another group among the most vulnerable members of society is the widows. The marital status of a woman in Uganda can hugely influence her well-being and that’s why widows face a lot of cultural and economic challenges compared to the singles, married & divorced. The Succession Act Of Uganda provides that a widow is entitled to 15% of her late husband’s belongings but some are always neglected due to family wrangles leaving them with nothing but emotional, physical and spiritual stress.
