COVID-19 - How Woman of Purpose is Responding

Uganda like the rest of the world has not been spared by the COVID-19 Pandemic. With Cases crossing the 1000 mark, Schools, Churches and nonessential businesses reamin closed, the night time curfew is still in place and public transport still faces some restrictions. Woman Of Purpose (WOP) has had to discontinue group activities, which has affected some of our projects especailly the Youth Empowerment Project.

We have however been able to serve our communities within the government issues parameters.

[over 50,000 people]

Our communities suffer with lack of information and mis-information. One of the things we are doing is to sensitise and teach our community about the Coronavirus, how is spreads and measures they can take to prevent from getting it. We have visited over 15 villages and reached more than 50,000 people in our sensitisation outreach.

[over 50 households]

Finding or having enough food is difficult for most of the families in the rural communities. A number of households have found it very difficult to engage in any economic activity due to the lockdown. Our tutors have specifically been affected because following the presidental directive, we closed our vocational school. We have therefore been able to give food to over 50 families and mainly to the most affected.
