Charity organizations can work but need your support, Suubi is on ground in Uganda the nation with the world’s youngest generation. Actions are required and you can help us by donating now. You can be a drop in an ocean with various materials and ways to impact the life of the Ugandan people, especially the children.
The government has tried to provide free medical services; still not all services are free or affordable! Secondly, the remoteness of the people in our communities also limits access to the least of these services. Therefore, there is need to extend and expand healthcare service delivery to all people and the use of technology to provide things like telemedicine.
The good message of Urbanization is causing diverse development activities like infrastructures reducing farming space. This affects food production, and causes desertation yet the rural communities have lived a peasantry life. So the need to promote agriculture and the message of food security is eminent to avoid hunger and loss of life.
Currently because of the corona virus, there is unplanned closure of schools in the country; The presidential directive to close education institutions for 32 days to slow the spread of corona virus, will see the term extended in case the situation normalizes.
Government therefore advised that schools and parents can find ways of keeping their learners busy during this period through online and televised learning programmes , home works and other methods. As Suubi our children are being affected for lack of modern learning equipments like computers and television sets, but also the scarcity of food and medical supplies in this difficult period.
Currently Uganda’s poor are bearing the brunt of a nationwide shutdown as part of efforts to contain the novel coronavirus outbreak.
President Museveni ordered restrictions on movement of people, including use of public or private vehicles, motorcycles, and directed closure of all shopping malls, arcades, hardware shops, all non-food stores, saloons, lodges and garages for 14 days, to roll back the spread of COVID-19.
Since More than 21% of Ugandans live in poverty, this section of people will become even poorer in the face of this disaster. As an organisation, we need provisions in form of food, and other relief supplies to extend to our members who are being affected because of this ongoing worldwide pandemic. So your support is highly needed.
