Youths in Rakai have been advised to be cautious and brave when asking for condoms to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS.
This was during Poor Child Uganda’s charity visit to Rakai over the weekend.
“Do not feel ashamed to ask for condoms. It is your life and you have to be cautious living it. If you don’t Know your partner’s status please don’t risk your life. Bravely ask for condoms. Said Rayan Mulindwa, founder of the organization.
Mulindwa also asked women to talk to their husbands who spend most of their time away from home into going for medical check-ups before they sexually get involved with them after they return home.
“If your husband happens to be one of those who spend most of their time away from home, please find ways of sweat talking them. Make them accept going for a health check-up for the good of your life and your family.” He said
Besides sensitising the citizens, the organization gave out Condoms and Sanitary pads to over five hundred people from ten villages in Rakai.
