How We are Supporting the Poorest People at Lake Bunyonyi During the Second Lockdown

As mentioned in this previous article, Uganda has been in a strict lockdown since June 18 due to the increasing number of COVID infections. The lockdown has been declared for at least 42 days. With millions of people still not having overcome the economic and social impact of last year’s lockdown on their lives, the consequences of this second lockdown for the already so poor population are incalculable. Poverty is increasing very fast; every day many people, both adults and children are dying from hunger. The situation is very urgent.

As HWMCO-Nederland & NiCA Foundation, we are offering help by regularly providing emergency food to the poorest in our work area at Lake Bunyonyi.

In the photo sliders below, we will post photos of our emergency food providences throughout the coming months, adding more photos after each distribution.
