Project Report: Feed & Cloth OVCs A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.— Walter Winchell

Words cannot express how grateful I am for your kindness and generosity.Thank you so much for being there for me through thick and thin. we would like to appreciate out donors for caring to donate even when COVID situation is much felt in your pockets, the children are very excited and we continue to do what we can with your generosity and much needed help for orphan and vulnerable children here in Uganda. The funds received have been able to buy exercise books and pencils for our boarding children and most of whom are former street kids now happily at school.

More of your continued donations can bring much smiles to the lives of millions of these children by way of giving to their clothing needs, and 2 meals opportunity each day, we struggle to cloth and feed them if your help is not realised. Thank you gain for caring to support and love children of this nature in your heart and country. As we bring educational opportunities to these children, the government has again locked schools for the next 42 days, and we are to find a way of helping these children keep safe from infection by buying masks and also making sure their homes are provided with sanitizes and basic hygiene materials if your donations can support this need, we care to follow up with the students and making sure each of them get a copy of the message below that the Ministry of Health and Unicef has given to schools, to help safe guard the rural children.

Help donate again for the children to get more clothing, food, and COVID materials to keep them safe while at home, and also help the project procure teaching materials such that these children study while at home for the next 40 days, as we wait for reopening of schools. Infections have begun among young children in Uganda and we worry if we do not give guidance and protection of our orphans we stand to lose. Please help these children. Thank you.

Corona virus (COVID-19): What you need to know and learn Protect yourself and your loved ones This is a new virus that causes a respiratory illness in people and animals and can spread from person-to person through sneezing and coughing droplets. This virus has signs and symptoms similar to the common cold but is dangerous and if not reported early and managed by Health Workers it can cause severe illnesses in humans and can lead to death. There are ongoing studies on the origins of Coronavirus. However, the current outbreak started in a large animal and seafood market in China, in a city called Wuhan.

Coronavirus is spread from human-to-human when an infected person’s sneeze or cough droplets come into contact with others. It can also spread when a person touches a contaminated surface, e.g. desk, chair, door handle etc. then touches their eyes, nose and/or mouth. Everyone is at risk. However, severe symptoms and death appear more frequently among older people. People with underlying health conditions such as lung or heart diseases, renal failure or weak immune systems are noted to be at a higher risk of infection. Most patients who have been seen so far present with:

• Fever

• Cough

• Sore throat

• Running nose

• Difficulty breathing

There are simple everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of the virus:

• Avoid close contact with people who are visibly sick with flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, sneezing).

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Wash your hands often with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

• Stay home when you experience these symptoms to avoid spreading illness to others.

• The sick are encouraged to use a facemask to cover their nose and mouth.

• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the dustbin and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and running water.

• Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as door handles and phones.

Key messages to children as they go home/ vilaages/ towns.

• Be on the lookout and avoid close contact with persons who show flu-like symptoms.

• Cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing.

• Regularly wash your hands with soap and running water.

• Whenever possible avoid handling cash and try to use alternative payment methods such as mobile money or debit/credit cards. Ensure you wash your hands thoroughly with soap and running water after handling cash.

• Thoroughly cook meat and eggs.

• Avoid unprotected contact with live wild or farm animals
