Hunger in Uganda Appeal

DDE’s Food For Thought (FFT) programme works with many rural primary schools in Mubende and Tororo Districts. Our co-ordinators report seeing a lot of hunger and distress.

So, this appeal is a very small effort to help some of the children and their families who are hungry.

100% of donations will be sent to our FFT co-ordinators, Godfrey and Beatrice, to buy food and distribute to 10 families in each of 10 schools, in each district, so 200 families initially.

£30 will feed a family of 5 for 14 days, providing: 25 kgs of maize flour (to make posho), 7 kgs of beans, 1 litre of cooking oil, some salt plus a bar of 4 pieces of soap

More information …

Agriculture is the backbone of Uganda’s economy – but just now, children and families are going hungry. This is due to bad weather, most probably linked to climate change, and the Covid-19 pandemic.

President Museveni immediately recognised the danger of the pandemic and closed borders, schools and the country in late March. This policy has been amazingly successful with 4,101 confirmed cases and 46 deaths reported from the virus! (as of 10th September 2020)

But children and families have really suffered. The 1st season’s harvest has been very poor, so food is scarce.  The on-going lock-down means that people who need to work  every day to earn money, as day-labourers for local farmers or as traders selling goods in weekly markets, have no work and so cannot earn money to buy food to feed their families.
