Women on wheels

Have you discovered The Gift Menu? Some have and kindly purchased Bicycles each costing £55, recently enabling 3 Ugandan women to be a lot more mobile and thus more productive.

Aisha and Florence are neighbours. Both are widows. Both have been HIV positive for years but despite their own health struggles they are mothers caring for many orphaned children and teenagers. During the dry season, when even the water tanks finally run dry, they must walk back and forth to the nearest water-hole with buckets to bring home enough for their large families. They have recently received a bicycle to share and are so happy at how the way this has lessened the time spent on water collection. And of course the many other errands now that can be done by these widows on wheels!
