International Women’s Day 2013!!

International Women’s Day 2013 was celebrated in style in Bukoteka, Uganda! Nine of the SAFE-affiliated community groups worked with SAFE leadership to plan a huge celebration. The day featured educational dramas and songs about safe motherhood and family planning (in their words, “safe mothers, safe babies”), immunizations, HIV testing (40 tests–all negative!), malaria testing and treatment, and prenatal care. In all, more than 100 people received care, and between 300 and 400 attended the event to celebrate women and their contributions to the local community.
