AFFCAD COVID-19 Response
Why we need your help
Help us provide essential food and charcoal to 300 vulnerable families in Bwaise.
Right now in Uganda, families are suffering from hunger created by measures taken to prevent the COVID-19 virus from spreading.
During this period of lockdown, people in Bwaise are unable to work and feed themselves. Many families are not receiving food relief from the Government, and are at risk of starving.
AFFCAD plan to raise $40,000 to provide essential food and charcoal for families living in Bwaise. Together, we can change the lives of starving people in this community.
- $40,000 target (including an admin fee for the team buying and distributing food)
- We will support 300 vulnerable families (based on a family of 7 members); a total of 2100 people
- $130 will create a package containing essential food and charcoal for one family
- Each package will support a family for at least 6 weeks
Distributing food packages:
Priority will be given to parents of AFFCAD School students, and then to the most vulnerable families in the community. AFFCAD will work with local leaders who know the families that did not receive government food relief and are most at risk of starving.
How your donation will help:
Your donation will change people's lives. Together, we can provide vulnerable families in Bwaise with essential food and help them survive this period of lockdown.
We understand this is a difficult time, and we hope you, your family and loved ones are safe and healthy. Thank you from everyone at AFFCAD and AFFCAD UK for making a donation and sharing our campaign.
