    Story

    Reverend Canon Gideon Byamugisha (born 1959) is an Anglican priest in Uganda. In 1992, he became the first religious leader in Africa to publicly announce that he was HIV positive. In 2009, Revd Byamugisha received the 26th annual NIWANO Peace Prize in recognition of his work to uphold the dignity and human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS. In 2015 he was diagnosed with cancer, received treatment and was making progress, but lack of funds meant that he cannot go for review in India where specialist treatment is being offered, in order to maintain the diagnosis. We need your help to give Revd Byamugisha a gift in time for his medical appointment in March 2019. Revd Byamugisha co-founded the African Network of Religious Leaders Living with and Personally Affected HIV and Aids (ANERELA+) in February 2002, and in 2003 founded Hope Institute for educating orphans. He lives with his wife and three HIV negative children. Every penny counts and we would truly appreciate all of your support at this time.

      Dear Friends, It was a few months ago that I set up this page to raise funds for Revd Canon Gideon, he has since been to India and received all the treatments needed. All his costs were covered and your donations also helped a lot. I am very grateful for all your support. Gideon is now back home in Uganda where he continues to do very well after his treatments. I am so thankful to Justgiving and to all of you.

      Thank you for organising this, Jide. Canon Gideon is a role model and a fighter whom nothing we give here can match what he has given to us all. Sending him all the best at this time of difficulty.
