Greetings Friends  and I hope this email finds you well. I pray that your family and loved ones are safe. 

 All is well on my end and the Lord is protecting us. Our children at God’s Love Home and School in Uganda are well.    For Uganda, there are about 53 confirmed COVID-19 cases; 4 recovered and zero death at this time. We pray it doesn't get worse.

 The country is on lockdown: schools, churches, public places, and transportation systems are shutdown and our President has just extended this for a further three weeks. Originally no transport was allowed on the roads apart from government vehicles but now trucks delivering food are allowed.  Most businesses are closed and many who rely on a daily wage have no money.  The government has promised posho and beans but we have yet to have any.  It can be difficult to find food within walking distance and prices have risen.  I am so grateful to friends who are keeping us going.  Without your help we would be in real difficulty.

 Let me tell you of some adjustments we have made.  I have sent 14 of the children, who normally live in GLH, to our farm where they can be more easily fed. 10 of our children with guardians have moved into GLH to ease the problems faced by guardians, many have several of their own children and have lost income.  There remain a further 14 with guardians who can better manage the present situation.  To support our guardians and their families we have bought some maize (corn) flour, beans, rice, salt, kerosene, and soap  supporting around a further 30 children. (Most of the children attend our school at God’s Love School). 

Thank you again for all you have done, especially at this time.  We will try and help others as resources become available. If you wish to help more children have food during this crisis, please contact me at james.mukiibi@yahoo.com  Mobile:  +256788963985  (Uganda)    to discuss the ways you could send us or mark  at markshawhamilton@hotmail.com  Mobile ; phone number 01633 615339 (UK)

 Blessings,

James
