The German foundation for world population trained some community health members, VCT Counselors, mobilizing forces in the community, home-based caregivers and educators among others on HIV/AIDS prevention through a community-based organization. During the project period, while the trained members were visiting the community, they realized that there was a big health problem in the community. Apart from HIV/AIDS as the main problem, there were more health issues such as an increased number of orphans/vulnerable children and jiggers menace because of parents’ death from HIV/AIDS. Most orphans whose parents had died from HIV/AIDS were infected by jiggers, this was a result of poor guardian care. In general, these children lacked basic needs such as health care, shelter, education and clothing among others. Having realized that there were all of these problems within the community, a few trained local volunteers from Butula decided 2014 to establish a group, which could address the above mentioned health issues. The group was then referred to as Community Development Self-Help Group (CDG), operating within Butula Sub County with its main office at Shibale Market within Marachi central Ward, focusing on Health and community development.
Volunteers are required to carry the following items for the workcamp: mosquito net, torch/flashlight, toiletries, first-aid kit, sleeping bag, sandals and sunscreen. In addition to those, volunteers can also carry the following items for interaction purposes: pictures of your country, clothes, toys, books, pens, etc.
