On World Health Day (Saturday, April 7th) Swahili at 5th Street will be donating 50% of our sales to the Mothers & Children's Medical Center of Gayaza, Uganda (a rural and under-served community about 10 miles north of the capital city, Kampala).
In Uganda, healthcare is a major challenge with mothers and children being among the most vulnerable groups. Without access to proper medical care, the rates of maternal mortality, infant mortality, and serious childhood illness are very high.
We invite you to show your support for the future of Uganda simply by shopping!
Enter a raffle or two, and sample African beer and wine while chatting with Allen Walugembe of MCMC to hear more about the launch of their important project and how together, we can help make a difference in the lives of mothers and their children in this under-served area of Uganda.
For more information on MCMC, please visit their website or their facebook page.
