Rescue Community Foundation Uganda

RECOFU (Rescue Community Foundation Uganda) is a certified non-governmental organization on the edge of Kampala, Uganda, which exists to curb the further spread of HIV/AIDS and improve the livelihoods of those affected/infected with HIV/AIDS in the community.

RECOFU started as RWEYOWA (Rescue Widows, Elderly, Youth and Orphans With AIDS) in 2003. As our role in serving the community has evolved and broadened over time, we have recently rebranded to RECOFU to better reflect the organisation’s purpose.
