Our team leaders, Drs. Scott & Jennifer Myhre, have been addressing health concerns in this community for well over a decade. Currently they are running the Kwejuna Project which acts to prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child (PMTCT). They provide medical attention to the mothers and children. For over a year, they have been the conduits of World Food Program rations for HIV/AIDS mothers. Now they are looking for other sources of nutritional assistance. Jennifer has spearheaded the WHM/NHC Nutrition Program and continues to care for the sick children who are enrolled as well as those who are inpatient at Nyahuka Health Center. They have a great blog: http://www.paradoxuganda.blogspot.com/.
