On Thursday, we worked with another partner Ismail Ibrahim Mohamed. He leads Somali Youth Action Organization a refugee led organization attached to the Somali community in Kisenyi a slum in Kampala. This is made of many refugees from Somalia and it is commonly called “mukisomali” referring to Somali community. Over 150 Somali refugees got food support.

Teachers here in Uganda are some of the people who have been adversely affected by this pandemic. Some have not been paid since last year, some lost their jobs because the school directors didn’t have the funds to sustain them any more so they laid them off. Some have resorted to other sources of income. Some have been able to get their daily bread from those side incomes. Unfortunately, the biggest number has not been able to cope up with this challenge due to different reasons.

Due to this need, we also considered and reached out to some teachers in Katabi, Entebbe area through their Teachers` association. We were able to share the message of hope and healing with the teachers here and gave them food relief as well. We gave to 80 teachers in this area.

From there, we proceeded to a project for the disabled children. These children suffer from hydrocephalus and some have other incurable diseases. These are also in Entebbe Katabi. They have no food and they do not even have wheel chairs. It is really hard cope up with the situation. We gave some of them food relief. We were able to give 100 children and their caretakers.
