Still in Covid-19 lockdown like most of the world, all schools, businesses and churches in Uganda remain shut.
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 many of those are at a complete standstill. 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. WARNING: This video contains brief verbal reference to rape and murder, so it's not ideal for kids.
