CCFU COVID-19 RELIEF

On March 21st, Uganda's Ministry of Health confirmed the first case of COVID-19 in Uganda. The pandemic came with challenges for the already impoverished and vulnerable communities that we are serving in Masaka & in Uganda at large, national-wide lockdown and curfew were announced by the Uganda government on 31 of March 2020. This presented an extremely difficult realities for already vulnerable families in Masaka and in Uganda; loss of family income, food shortage, poor health & sanitation in cramped homes, rising of food prices and an increased risk of violence abuse and neglect. The extra financial and social impact of COVID-19 families are struggling to get essential supplies placing many of them in an impossible situations. This why CCFU, Save the Children & Children Vitamin Project came together to launch COVID-19 Relief Fund to support the victims.
