No money No Food

Why we need your help

child

No work = No food

That is the stark truth for our friends in Kasese, Customs and Bwera in Uganda. Living in the towns is hand to mouth. In this current global corona crisis markets in Kasese, Customs and Bwera are closed. All businesses are closed down so people are not able to earn money. The only food available is from the few food shops that are open and if you have no money you cannot buy food. Families are going hungry in lockdown.

Please help the locally based Amaha We Uganda Team to provide urgently needed food parcels through William’s church in Customs and the Amaha We Uganda office in Uganda. These food parcels will provide the most basic of ingredients to feed a family one meal daily- that is cassava, maize flour and beans. They will also send soap so people can wash their hands. The street children we work with will also receive this immediately urgent help.

A food parcel to feed a family of 6 for 10 days costs 87,000UGX (about £19.00). It will comprise 10 kg maize flour, 10kg beans, 2 litres cooking oil, i sachet of salt and 1 bar soap to wash hands.

We must also think ahead. No farming now means no food next season. There is no shortage of water at the moment because the rains have come. People need to be planting now, not only their cash crops but also subsistence crops of cassava, beans and kitchen gardens. We must avoid a future food crisis.

We have started by sending out a first payment today (22nd April) from our very limited reserves, which William will co-ordinate and report on. Please give what you can, so we can continue to support this important work. Your donation today will help people in dire need today and make sure they can plant food for the future. Thank you.

A memory from 2010: My thoughts turn to the other essential, in addition to Food; potable water.
