    we are Relief Aid Africa, an organization that comprises mostly of medical personnel and have a common goal of improving the livelihoods of impoverished Ugandans though we have been carrying out these duties without any donor.
    we have traversed the country offering free medical care and attention through the medical camps we have been organizing. We came across this advertisement that seeks applicants for grants and we would like to say that we are interested and would love to get to know more information about this advert and how we can apply
