Covid-19 video update May 5

Date posted: 05 May 2020

Still in Covid-19 lockdown like most of the world, all schools, businesses and churches in Uganda remain shut.

Here in Namatala, most of the active men (who normally work as casual labourers) cannot now earn money on a daily basis to feed their families. Most of the active women have small businesses. But right now, nobody can work and all of the women’s businesses are at a complete standstill. Our IGA mums are using up their hard-earned business capital and savings to keep themselves and their families alive. Hunger and starvation is a far greater danger to our mothers and their children than the virus at this point.

This short video (2.5 minutes) includes interviews from one of our primary pupils, a slum community leader and CoH staff.
