On 21 March, Uganda confirmed its first case of COVID-19. Since April 1, Uganda has been under lockdown to try to avoid the spread of the virus. Women, girls and vulnerable groups are at increased risk of SGBV (Sexual and Gender-based violence) during this time. Your donation will support vulnerable groups to be protected from domestic abuse and provide them with essential supplies during COVID-19.
Uganda was until March 21, one of the few countries in the world with no confirmed COVID-19 case. To mitigate risks the president of Uganda announced on March 18, 2020, a number of unprecedented measures to help prevent the spread of this pandemic and the country has been under lockdown since April, 1. Nyaka has taken swift measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and sensitize our communities. Help us continue to shield the children and their grandmothers from a bigger harm.
Nyaka has developed a holistic approach to supporting communities in Kanungu and Rukungiri districts in rural southwest Uganda. Donations to this fund will allow us to continue to support the provision of soap, medicines, school work packages and radio awareness and educational programs to the communities we work with. We continue working to ensure services for women and children who have experienced violence, so they can remain safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Both lives and livelihoods are at risk from this pandemic, as the disease is spreading quickly. Our project aim to reduce the impact of COVID-19. We intend to support emergency basic needs while building stronger response capacity.
