Project Report | Oct 19, 2022
Thank you

By Lucas Akol | Project Leader

With your kind and generous support towards making life better for a child in a refuge camp, residents there could meet basic food needs preventing further damage arising from malnutrition.

 The dollars you gave are untouched, reason being we are planning for end of year/Xmass camp visit. Our camp visit is sheduled for the end of Decemenber 2022 where we shall be handing over  most of the items purchased to the beficiaries as we wait for the rains to start well. This willnot be possible without your support, we thank you for your generosity we pledge that every dollar shall be spent in the righful manner as per the project description and donation purpose only 12% of your dollars will be used on administrative basis to reach the camp.

SCOEN's multipronged approach after realizing provision of food relief is not sustainable and requires continues funding which is not easy to secure.

Creating a better sustainable way to deal with hunger by establishing and strengthening the self-groups with the host communities, refugees and create perspectives. Train them in effective, ecologically sustainable agricultural techniques in horticulture adapted to the new climatic conditions specifically horticulture. Fighting malnutrition from the vegetable garden around the camp; helping the families grow food for themselves.

Supporting agriculture among refugee populations makes an especially meaningful difference. When refugees, host communities and displaced people can grow their own food, they do not have to rely on food aid. This helps them rebuild their lives and have sustainable access to nutritious food. We instance intend toset up a program in the Bidi-Bidi refugee camp to distribute tools and teach participants about growing food, helping them to break the cycle of hunger and conflict; use gardening to fight hunger in their communities.

Vegetables in Human Nutrition and Disease Prevention; vegetables are important for human health because of their vitamins, minerals, phytochemical compounds, and dietary fiber content. Especially antioxidant vitamins (vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E) and dietary fiber content have important roles in human health. Adequate vegetable consumption can be protective some chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases, as well as improve risk factors related with these diseases.

With the generous support of people like you, our emergency teams are helping save lives, providing lifesaving treatment to malnourished children and delivering urgent food and other rebuild activities.Together, we can take urgent action to prevent children from sliding even deeper into tragedy. Now is the time to act and help children survive.

You can probably stretch your dollars through the Food for children in refugee settlement Uganda fundraiser we created on GlobalGiving platform link that we created recently on the same or even do bank wire which ever way you find suitable for you.

We know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, so we feel privileged that you chose to invest in our work. You are now part of our community and we're honored to have you.

Thank you in advance
