Supporting children during COVID-19 lock-down

Food distribution

The national closure of children support structures like schools and places of worship which provide education and provide protection role to children has put children under intense psychological/ mental, financial and social distress which also has increased their risks to exploitation, unwanted pregnancy among the girl child and starvation. As a result of the COVID-19 lockdown, many households in Uganda have experienced economic meltdown that has devastated the incomes of families making it hard to feed families. Suffice to note, the small-scale trades of parents such as food vendors, hairdressers and welders among others have equally waned or closed. As a result, children and their households are increasingly forced into hazardous and exploitative work in order to support their families.

During this period under review, Empowerment for the Poor-Uganda has supported 79 families with food relief items targeting the families of Orphans and vulnerable children in respond to the current COVID 19 crisis. We have offered food supplies to critically vulnerable families where children are experiencing untold suffering by giving them food items like posho, cooking oil, beans, salt, sugar, soap, reusable sanitary towels to the girl child as well supporting children with agriculture and farming techniques to keep them busy. We are extremely indebted with the generous contribution of our supporters because without your support, we would not have impacted the lives of these children and putting smiles on their faces like we have done. The COVID-19 lock down situation is still a big challenge to many families of orphans and vulnerable children that without continued support, many children are going to be denied of their childhood. Thank you for your continued support
