The Achon Uganda Children’s Fund (AUCF) was established in 2007 by two-time Olympic runner Julius Achon in response to the dire situation faced by the residents of his home village in Otuke County (Orum district) in Northern Uganda. Ravaged by the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army during Uganda’s two-decade civil war, damaged by floods, and, more recently, touched by famine caused by drought, the region’s residents are struggling in the face of truly inadequate living conditions, and many children have been left without family. AUCF is committed to helping the community rebuild and set a course toward good health, stability and self-sufficiency.
Engeye is working with AUCF on its health care clinic and sharing what Engeye has learned over the years.
