Summary

Children who depend on school lunch for their daily nutrition in Uganda no longer have access to food. Nearly a quarter of its population lives below the poverty line. The number of needy children will increase as the COVID19 pandemic spreads. Without proper nutrition, children will become malnourished and have weakened immune systems leading to serious health problems or even death. Donations to this project go directly to rural Ugandan communities to provide food and basic needs.

Challenge

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, schools in Uganda have closed. This results in children being at home and families not having the resources to feed more mouths each day. With 41% of the population earning less than $2 a day and the local economy being impacted severely by COVID-19, families are struggling to provide food.

Solution

KCA is raising money to purchase food and basic materials to help meet this urgent need in Kassanda, Uganda. This project will provide at least one healthy meal daily, along with other basic necessities, for up to 40 children for two months.

Long-Term Impact

Investing in children during this unprecedented time will have positive impacts on the entire community. Thriving and nourished children will be able to return to school following the pandemic where they can learn and play, eventually getting work to contribute to their communities as they move into adulthood.
