Daphine receives food aid and learning resources
During this challenging time of COVID-19 lockdown, many women and girls in Uganda have struggled with starvation as they have been unable to earn even a meagre wage.
As a team, our movement and social gatherings have been restricted, nevertheless, we are pleased to tell you that we have been able to pivoted our support to provide girls with vital food and hygiene supplies. The girls are so happy with this aid as the lockdown has really squeezed people.
On behalf of the girls and their families, I appreciate this support from the GlobalGiving community to our people here, you are indeed outstanding partners to help people in such need.
Furthermore, with schools set to be closed for almost an entire year, we have also turned our support to help vulnerable girls who have no access to learning materials, supplying them with education supplements and radios to tune into government education broadcasts.
Daphine is set to take her O levels later this year. Her guardian says:
“Thank you for the food and learning packages, they are a big relief to help us manage through this lockdown.”
We thank you for standing with us and our communities in their hour of need.
