Uganda’s stay-at-home order to contain the spread of COVID-19 has left some residents fearful they will die of hunger rather than the virus.

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic that is sweeping the world, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni issued clear rules: stay at home unless it is an emergency. With his directive, he stopped all passenger service and private vehicles and imposed a curfew from 7 p.m. until 6:30 a.m., which effectively makes the stay at home order mandatory.

But most of Ugandans are a hand-to-mouth lot. Literally, they live off their ability to make it to every day hustles. A slight disruption in this routine means people will go hungry at home.

As Marianne, we  seeks for assistance/donations to

  • Help women who are currently dying, delivering on road side or failing to reach health centers due to transport lock down.
  • The girls who are under the skilling program, were sent home but they have no food to eat
  • Menstruation continues to affect girls even during this lock down, we seek to work and support these girls with sewed menstrual pads.
  • Distribute soaps, train and establish tippy taps on 100 families in villages.

We seek for help on any of the needs above our total estimate budget is $2,500
