AIDS patients dedicate a new clinic in Uganda

More than 30 AIDS patients sang together to celebrate the Oct. 19 dedication of an AIDS clinic that Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) helped build at Mengo Hospital in Kampala, Uganda.

For years, the staff of Mengo Hospital has struggled to care for AIDS patients in a smaller building without enough private rooms. The new clinic includes six counseling rooms, a pharmacy and other facilities to serve about 1,700 men, women and children with HIV. (MCC)
