73-year-old Margaret Tibananukye, a resident of Kigongo village in Kabale lost his son and 2 daughters to HIV/Aids.
Tibananukye operates a small retail business in Kabale but has 14 grand children, left by deceased children to look after.
She sells yellow bananas at the boarder to raise some income to support her grand children.
Only 3 of the 14 children are in secondary school thanks to Kigezi dioceses which pays the tuition of Tibananukye's grand children.
Tibananukye says that she finds it very difficult to provide sufficiently for her grand children because of her frail body and advanced age.
She is just one, amongst the hundreds of families in the district affected by the HIV/Aids scourge.
The HIV/Aids prevalence rate in Kabale has more than double the national average.
Statistics at Kabale Department indicates that HIV/Aids prevalence rate in the district is 12 percent compared to the 6 percent national average.
Dr .Patrick Tusiime, Kabale District Health Officer attributes the high prevalence rate of HIV to rampant prostitution in the district.
He says that the prostitution business is boosted by the high number of heavy truck drivers who operate on the Rwanda route and park in the boarder town.
Tusiime says that the truck drivers prefer unprotected sex which is fueling the spread of HIV/Aids in Kabale.
He says that the district is planning to roll out door sensitization campaign amongst the resident to reduce the infection rate.
Leonard Tumwesigye, who deals with HIV/Aids orphans, says a lot have to be put in place to economically empower people living along the Uganda and Rwanda boarder.
Tumwesigye claims that young girls from both countries are forced into prostitution to earn a living because of the biting poverty.
He also claims that girls from Rwanda cross into Uganda to practice prostitution where laws are more relaxed compared to their home country.
Moses Katwesigye, who works at Katuna health center, believes the situation is getting out of hand unless something is done to avert the high infection.
