Okuyamba Fest 2017

In Uganda, as in many other countries throughout the world, children often are the primary caregivers to a parent or parents facing serious, end-of-life issues. After the death of their parents, with no breadwinner to support them, they often are forced to drop out of school and look for casual jobs such as selling ground nuts on the streets in urban areas or begging for money in order to survive.

The Road to Hope Fund was created as a viable resource for some child caregivers who could very easily find themselves on a much different road were it not for the assistance it provides. It is administered through the cooperative efforts of Palliative Care Association of Uganda (PCAU) and Hospice Foundation.

Proceeds from this year's Okuyamba Fest will once again benefit the Road to Hope Fund. The evening will feature a delicious sampling of foods, beers and wines from around the world. Also on tap for the evening is a silent auction featuring craft and art items from Ugandan artisans. Attendees will also have an opportunity to view either of Hospice Foundation's two documentaries Okuyamba and Road to Hope.
