A Big Thanks for a Successful Food Distribution

DISTRIBUTION OF FOOD AND SOAP REPORT TO OVC HOUSE HOLDS HELD ON 21ST JUNE 2020.

1.0. INTRODUCTION

In this COVID 19 Pandemic many OVC households   have suffered  so much this  was because some of the people who were supporting these families were locked in the lockdown and their businesses were locked up this lead these families to starve  and lack some or all basic needs of the family ,the government did not give any supported to these vulnerability families, therefore Kassanda children’s Aid after realizing that there is a need to help made an appeal to friends who intervened quickly to save lives of the most desperate.

2.0. CATEGORIES OF PEOPLE WHO WERE SERVED FOOD.

We identified two categories of people who were in need of food but we only give food to one category.

i)                    Critical 

ii)                   Moderate.

Those who were in critical category include

-          Child house hold headed families.

-          These who caregivers are very old and chronically ill.

-          Those under starvation and poverty stricken house hold it’s a chance for them to get food.

-          Those who HIV positive and have minimal access to safe water and health services etc.
KCA gave food to these category of people.

3.0. OBJECTIVE OF FOOD DISTRIBUTION

-          To save lives

-          To restore /give hope to the vulnerable people.

4.0. TYPES OF FOOD AND ITEMS DISTRIBUTED.

1.       Maize (Posh)

2.       Soap

The family with large number of OVC’s was given 15kgs of maize flour and those with less number were given 10kgs followed with 2 bars of soap.

5.0.  ACHIVEMENT OBSERVED.

-          The exercise was successfully done.

-          There was a smile of happiness from the OVC’s and their caregivers.

-          People’s hope was restored

-          O.V.C house hold members got what they were not expecting.

6.0. CHALLENGES OBSERVED.

-          High expectation of clients from us such as sugar, salt, rice , cooking oil. Etc.

-          Some OVC’s and their caregivers were chronically ill and they cried for our help i.e there was an old lady who had a
swollen stomach which needs emergency medical care and she is caring for three young children.
-          Seeking permission from the authorities to allow us distribute the food.

-          Fear of the pandemic COVID 19.

-          Many OVC families were left due to insufficient food.

-          A total of 60 benefited, broken down into 25 Males and 35 Females.

 7.0. RECOMMENDATIONS.

We appeal to everyone with good heart throughout the world to support by giving in something in order to save the lives of people who are very near to die of hunger in Kassanda and Uganda in particular.
