There is high demand for face masks and government intervention is not there. 2. The organization lacks adequate financial support to execute the Project. Recommendations: KADO still requests all well-wishers to be part of us and give a helping hand to support vulnerable rural communities in Uganda. COVID 19 is a dreadful disease particularly to the elderly,people with non-communicable diseases in Uganda. Communities lack adequate knowledge and skills on the prevention strategies. Therefore there is great need for sustainable community programs to reduce the infection spread.
