Help 100 families in Kilembe Community recover



A heavy down pour hit Kilembe Mines villages and the surrounding Rwenzori ranges in Kasese District in Uganda on the night of the April 2013. This is the worst down pour that the region has experienced in the last 30 years or more. The project will provide emergency assistance and long term relief to those affected by the heavy down pour.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Homes in the Kilembe Mines villages have been wiped off the map due to a heavy down pour. The death toll currently stands at 4 people but sadly, the number is expected to increase. Hundred are injured or displaced and have lost property. Villages have been cut off because bridges have been washed away. It is estimated that the entire nursing quarters village as been washed away.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will offer immediate relief and recovery efforts in the aftermath of the heavy down pour that has left homes destroyed and families displaced. Funds will help survivors and victims get necessary immediate relief supplies like food, shelter, water etc and as well as provide long term support like resettling those affected.

Potential Long Term Impact
