Act4Africa Urgent COVID-19 Appeal

Why we need your help

Help us protect communities living in poverty from the impact of COVID-19.

Like many countries fighting COVID-19, Uganda has been in lock-down for many weeks. For those living in poverty, lockdown is a death sentence.  Families are starving, unable to buy food without their meagre income.

On top of this some of the girls supported by Act4Africa have been hit by devastating floods, with storms decimating hospitals, homes and crops.

The situation is now desperate.  That’s why we need your help to support our community during this crisis: to bring food aid and health education to those who need it most.

To reach out to those who think they’ve been forgotten.

Please donate now and help us save lives.

Thank you.

Vital Food Aid

Act4Africa are working to provide emergency food aid to families who need it most.

Public Health Education and PPE

In poverty-stricken rural communities there is a dangerous information gap regarding the coronavirus. Here, harmful myths are spread in the absence of knowledge.

Act4Africa’s Ugandan team is experienced in engaging deeply with rural communities to deliver health education. We have already begun delivering life-saving information to the community as well as PPE to rural health centres, but there is an urgent need to do more.

Continued Access to Education

One of Act4Africa's main aims is to improve access to education for girls and children under 6.  With schools currently closed, we want to deliver homelearning packs, books and solar lamps to our beneficiaries, together with hygiene materials and food for their families.

Act4Africa are at the frontline of action on the COVID-19 outbreak in Uganda. We are a small charity and work on a tight budget. Any donation will help us keep our small team employed, maintaining critical services and responding rapidly to the growing need during this crisis.
