Support families in Uganda during COVID-19 through essential supply

Mpigi District, Uganda

Due to the mandated lock down, people in Uganda are unable to generate an income which provides their families with food and pays for utilities. We support families in Mpigi District with food and other essential supplies during the COVID-19 crisis

Über das Projekt

Support families Mpigi District, Uganda with food and other essential supplies during this COVID 19 crisis .

THE PROBLEM
Social Distancing being a luxury that only a few can afford! Going by recent statistics  83% of employment in Uganda is in the informal sector, with no opportunity to work due to the COVID-19 lock down. "Hunger knows no shame nor fear" - if not well handled this will leave many Ugandans in civil strife but imagine those families living with children . While many governments should be prepared to play a much bigger role to subsidise living conditions particularly for those in the informal sector, in Uganda that could be a luxury that our government cannot afford .

OUR SOLUTION:

Five social enterprises from Social Innovation Academy (http://socialinnovationacademy.org)

Uganics: provides purely organic, mild scented mosquito repellent to eliminate Malaria in Africa (https://www.uganics.org)
Gejja Women Foundation: is a community based women cooperative in Mpigi District to economically empower marginalized girls and women. (http://gejja.org)
Reform Africa : transforms plastic waste bags into sustainable, durable, water proof and affordable bags. (http://reformafrica.org)
Ouroots Africa: provides natural and sustainable alternatives to single use plastics. (http://ourootsafrica.com)
WeGanda: is a self-organised empowerment and innovation centre to support Women to face and deal with their daily life challenges. (https://we-ganda.org)

are collaborating to support families in Mpigi District with food and other essential supplies for a 3 months during this COVID 19 crisis.

We are responding to the current COVID 19 crisis by offering food supplies and other essential items like cooking oil , sugar , salt , tea leaves , onions , maize and millet flour ,rice , multi purpose soap, multi purpose biodegradable washers / cleaners and reusable sanitary towels : all these come in big hamper. Through the purchase of food, we try to support local farmers within Mpigi District to generate an income. Other essentials: like soap, biodegradable washers and reusable sanitary tools are products, that we as social enterprises produce.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION:
We hope to work with more organisations and individuals to increase our current capacity and provide the needed relief for many more families . Our group of community volunteers are working hard to put measures in place to meet the increasing need and be an Epicentre of help in the coming days .
