Touched by the story, the well-wishers from Child's i Foundation in partnership with the Ministry of Gender, have also pledged to pay for her epileptic six months baby's medication.

"We have today given her food supplies worth 637,000 and are working on medical supplies for the child and the long-term intervention plan is to set up for her an income-generating activity for her and her family," Aidah Agwang, the advocacy manager at Child's i Foundation said.

Agwang noted that as an organization, they would like to support struggling families in Makindye division.

"We would like families especially in Makindye division to know that we are on the ground, doing the work to support families and hopefully this story will help more families in Makindye Division to get in touch with our team so we can support them where we can," said Agwang.

Speaking to New Vision, Hilda Ahimbisibwe, could not hide her excitement and praises to God. She broke down in tears while thanking the organization and everyone who has reached out to her.

"I have been receiving different calls and I have been encouraged to keep my children. I feel like the weight that was on my shoulder is off, may God bless everyone who has given me something to feed my children. This world still has generous people," noted Ahimbisibwe.
