Food for Kasese Flood Victims

Why we need your help

On May 7th River Nyamwamba burst its banks and flooded the Valley of Kilembe.  Altogether four rivers from the Rwenzori Mountains in Western Uganda flooded and changed their courses, destroying houses, gardens, fields and the Kilembe Mines Hospital.  Forty people lost their lives and many were made homeless. The Kilembe Mines Hospital, totally destroyed, has moved 10 kilometres to Kasese town centre.      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVz2l_HVs94

DOUBLE YOUR DONATION   Can you help us raise £3,000 by making a donation today?  Any gift made before 1st July through this Food for Kasese Flood Victims will be matched up to £1,500.

Keith Lindsey of DISCOVER has had a close partnership with 3 local leaders over the past decade. 

DISCOVER has already provided some emergency relief through these partners on the ground, but more is needed.

The immediate aim is to help 40 families. In Kirembe village, fifteen elderly people are caring for their grandchildren during this Covid 19 pandemic and they need emergency food aid and health care services.  In Maliba sub-county twenty five families had their houses and farms completely destroyed and are living in temporary camps. 

Your donation will help to buy

  • Basic foodstuffs, cooking utensils and bedding.
  • Seeds so that they can plant again and have food in the future.
  • Corrugated iron sheets, nails and timber to rebuild their houses on higher ground.
  • Trees to plant to stabilise the land, protect homes and mitigate against such disasters in future.

Please help us access the matched funding kitty by helping us raise £1,500 which will be doubled by our champion to become £3,000

This is to enable our Discover partners in Kasese to help the most needy. They know best who must be helped. I'm one of the advisors in Keith Lindsey's Discover management team.

Kenya is also affected by rain, floods and mudslides. People have lost land, homes and livelihoods. I am also involved in relief there. Best wishes for the Uganda projects.
