/24-7PressRelease/ - Vancouver, BC, May 01, 2008 - Shanti Uganda (www.shantiuganda.org) improves the physical, emotional and spiritual health of communities impacted by war, poverty and HIV or AIDS in Uganda.
"Through the use of yoga, expressive arts therapy, traditional healing and organic farming practices, we teach children ways to heal from the inside out," says Natalie Angell, Co-Founder & Director of Shanti Uganda Foundation. "Our programs restore traditional birthing practices in rural communities through education and birth assistance and relieve poverty by supporting income generating initiatives for women with HIV and AIDS," continued Angell.
On Saturday May 10th, 2008 Shanti Uganda is selling the jewellery made by the women in the women's craft cooperative. All jewellery is made by the members of an income generating group for women with HIV or AIDS in Uganda . The colourful jewellery is made from rolled strips of recycled paper and money from jewellery sales is used by the women to pay for treatment, to send their children to school and to support the children who have been orphaned since the project began.
