Uganda National Heroes Day 2020 vis-à-vis COVID-19

Although Uganda celebrates National Heroes Day 2020 on June 9, 2020 and it is a public holiday detailed at: https://www.officeholidays.com/holidays/uganda/uganda-national-heroes-day; the government of Uganda could not stop its assignment it had assigned to the minister of Information Communication and Technology (ICT) to verify the situation of COVID-19 in Lango Sub-region in Northern Uganda.

Amidst the Kole District COVID-19 Task Force in the attendance of the review meeting was the project Leader of Kole Intellectual Forum; invited to represent the Civil Society Organization of Kole District; because of their charismatic activities to come out openly and join the district task force to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the project link on GlobalGiving page at: http://goto.gg/31562

In a speech delivered by the chairperson Kole District Task Force who is also Resident District Commissioner Kole; he observed that, since the declaration of the pandemic (COVID-19) in March 2020 to date; the district has not yet registered any positive result from anybody within district; although, the district had been quarantining about 6 suspects that are also at the moment discharged having found out that they were negative.

However, despite all these situations; the chairperson through the minister; requested the government of Uganda to continue supporting them with resources necessary to help them handle the emergency such as: District ambulances, motorcycles, and others including the food substances to be distributed to the needy. Building of the permanent quarantine Center was one of the key issues that emerged.  

The minister responded by referring the district Task Force to the World Health Organization guideline as well as presidential directives; he promised to follow up their request from the line ministry and ensures that COVID-19 is prevented from Uganda.

The meeting was then close by the Chairperson Local V of Kole District.

Dear patrons,

Fund being re-allocated to prevent COVID-19 

Be rest assured that: every fund received from any source to our organization (Kole Intellectual Forum); including that, that is being received from that of GlobalGiving platform is allocated for the purpose asked for; any diversion of any fund from our organization's core purpose to another activity is strictly being done so with permission from the members of the board resolution as per the guideline of the organization’s financial policy attached.

Following need assessment from our communities and from the resolution from the members of Board from the time of World Health Organization's declaration to a complete lockdown to all the countries around world; we found out that, there was need to modify the organization’s activities from promoting quality, sustainable and potential education to include promoting hygiene in Uganda in the area where our organization is operation (post war area of Northern Uganda); particularly, by providing our community, district COVID-19 task force, and health centers within Kole district with Face masks and liquid soap to help prevent the spread of the scourge.

However, as time is moving on, as to compare from the time of early declaration of the pandemic in March, 2020 by WHO; in Uganda the situation is moving from better to worst in terms of total cases reported although there is still no death that has so far being reported. For instance, in the early March, 2020 in Uganda, less than 100 people were affected; but today, as of June 8, 2020, there are about 616 cases that has been recorded according to worldometers (2020).

Given that: Uganda is among the 3rd world countries with little capacity in term of resources to handle the pandemic as to compare to the developed countries; the team of Kole Intellectual Forum has recommended that: prevention of the spread of virus would be the best option. with report from the chair person, Kole Distric COVID-19; the organization is authentically  observant to report that: there is an urgent need to support the team with 2 motorcycles and one tent at collection center.

Kole Intellectual Forum therefore requesting its donors to help them raise fund from GlobalGiving platform to be donated to Kole District COVID-19 Task Force to support its activities within the district.

Kole Intellectual Forum; a little unknown Community Based Organization, base at the post war area of Northern Uganda; with its major focus to promote quality, sustainable, & potential education of the majority of children of ordinary men in the public schools since 2016; among others cannot wait to see COVID-19 threatening the world and its community; but rather to join the rest the world to prevent the spread of the scourge using the available fund in their hands that had been/or, are being raised from the platform of GlobalGiving.    

Borrowing a leaf from CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) that: even before the outbreak of COVID-19, they used to advocate for a healthy environment; especially, surfaces that are frequently touched by multiple people, such as door handles, bathroom surfaces, and handrails or human hands and faces. In deed, they advocated that, those areas should always be kept cleaned with soap and water or another detergent at least daily when facilities are in use. To avoid spread of any deadly virus, not only COVID-19, the system revealed that, more frequent cleaning and disinfection may be required in an environment base on level of use.

To prevent the spread of the viruses (COVID-19 and others), following the recommendation of CDC to maintain a healthy environment and a healthy humans; Kole Intellectual Forum, has donated 15 jerricans of 20 liters,  8 jerricans of 5 liters, and 30 jerricans of 3 liters of liquid soap to Kole District COVID-19 TaskForce to be distributed to the 15 public and nonprofit Health centers, one prison station, one central police station and the community of Kole district at large; purposely, to promote hygiene within the area and avoid the spread of COVID-19 virus and others.

As confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to rise as of May 28, 2020: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that, everyone should wear a cloth mask when they go out in public to avoid spread of the scourge.

To supplement the effort of Government of Uganda; who promised to distribute face masks to control the spread of the disease among its citizen; Kole Intellectual Forum would like to report to you that, they have joined them and the rest of the world in contributing into slowing the spread of the virus in Uganda and help those people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others; by providing them with cloth face mask made from their Academy; detailed at: https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=141594

As we wait for the time to focus in our endeavors to promote quality, sustainable, and potential education in public schools in Uganda; we have so far directed our activities to address the issues at hand: protect the communities of Uganda from global threats – COVID-19

"COVID-19 as the world's most dangerous threat" according to UNICEF (2020); in education sector alone, in the view of the report: about 1.53 billion learners are out of school and 184 country-wide schools are closed, impacting 87.6% of the world's total enrolled learners; Kole Intellectual Forum, that is, promoting quality, sustainable and potential education in Uganda; has modified its action to include preventing the pandemic by promoting an hygiene at home, schools and in the hospitals.

Although armed conflict has been the waste global catastrophe; with the declaration of COVID-19 by WHO on the 11th March 2020, the pandemic has not just been a public health crisis; but rather, a crisis that was expected to touch every sector; and by 24/5/2020 close to about 343,983 people globally have already lost their lives to the scourge according to COVID-19 Worldometer (2020). This describes the magnitude to which this pandemic needs to be prevented from spreading to where it can be controlled.

Given that: the spread of the virus is scaling down globally, but on the other hand raising in Uganda; with the advice from World Health Organization that: Handwashing remains the No. 1 tip for preventing the spread of COVID-19; Kole Intellectual Forum is therefore contented that, to promote quality, sustainable and potential education in Northern Uganda, Kole district; the organization would like to report to you that: it has modified its activities to include advocating for the prevention of COVID-19 by providing homes, schools and Hospitals with liquid soap and face masks.

If we can protect the lives of our communities from this dangerous threat; our children at schools will be able to perform well. Hence, globally, we will recovery from the aftermath threat of this virus.
