In Africa, the virus has spread to dozens of countries within weeks. Governments and health authorities across the continent are striving to limit widespread infections.
Lockdown = no work = starvation
Many families that live hand to mouth, often just a few days away from starvation. Those who could stocked up on supplies, leaving the poorest without essential food items.
In times of crisis, children suffer the most. Many are at risk of losing their lives. We cannot help everyone, but we can save many. These children are facing a desperate situation and are turning to us.
At this time of crisis, we have a unique opportunity to show our humanity. and save the lives of thousands of children who most likely won’t catch the virus but could very well starve.
We are working across Uganda and Kenya, providing funds to families for basic food items, as well as medical supplies to provide essential medical care.
