Our Second Supply Drop | Gallery
Updated: Jun 2, 2020
Again, I would like to start by thanking all those who donated, I cannot stress enough the gratitude we have been receiving and I would like to pass that straight onto those who have been supporting us.
All this week we have been getting basic supplies to those who need it most and we were able to reach 125 families.
Same as last time, Richard invited those who live close enough and are physically able to his home to collect supplies. For those far away or unable to carry the supplies we again delivered them to their homes/community centres. Because of the generosity of our backers, we were able to reach a much wider area this time.
In total, we supplied 450kg of posho, 100kg of beans, 125kg of rice, 65 litres of cooking oil, soap and salt.
Uganda was on a very strict lockdown but has recently eased it slightly to allow certain businesses to re-open, such as wholesale stores. While this may make it a tad easier for those living in cities, we doubt it will make any difference for people living in the countryside who are still unable to work and have little to no savings to rely upon.
The lockdown measures and lack of tourist money coming into the area are putting great pressur on families. Most are currently surviving on one rationed meal per day and often they don’t even have that.
It’s a tough situation and so we are going to continue to do what we can. If you would like to support us, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
