Challenge

Rural communities are underprivileged and continue to live at risk to COVID -19 infections in Uganda particularly in Kibuku and Budaka districts. They lack access to COVID 19 personal protective gears such sanitizers, masks, gloves, soap including correct information on the use yet the disease is escalating in the community. The current number of infected persons as at 22/7/2020 stands at 1050 and without tight prevention measures, it will escalate and the government will not afford the effects

Solution

Hand washing remains the No. 1 tip for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, Kagumu Development Organization will promote quality, sustainable and community health education in Eastern Uganda particularly in Kibuku and Budaka districts. The organization will continue to advocate for the prevention of COVID-19 by promoting the use of personal protective gears and provide homes, schools, trading centers and health facilities with sanitizers and personal protective gears.

Long-Term Impact

Kagumu Development Organization is protecting the lives of rural communities from this dangerous threat; there will be reduced death and increased production, saving and the economy of the country will gain. Hence, globally, we will recover from the outcomes of the threats of this virus.
