Ndibwami Integrated Rescue Project
managed by H. Nalugo Sabastian
Ndibwami Integrated Rescue Project (NIRP) is a community based organization initiated by the Kimmanya Catholic youth community under the leadership Sr.Rosemary Shields of the Daughters of charity from the UK in 2002. The organization started as a parish arm to provide support and care to people Having HIV/AIDS. NIRP seeks to provide compassion to children affected by HIV, their families and communities. The founding of NIRP was based on people that were unified by common experiences faced when encountering HIV/AIDS at a time of high stigma, ignorance and discrimination. The founding team provided mutual psychological and social support. Cohesion among these was strengthened by the fact that they were either directly infected with HIV or implicitly affected because their very close family associates were infected.
One distinguished feature about the founder members was that they voluntarily used their time and other resources to visit AIDS patients, carrying them to the hospital and sometimes providing material social and psychological support.
