Emergency Relief

Emergency Relief

As lockdowns continue in Uganda the poorest and hardest working people – who normally depend on a meagre daily income from menial jobs or small businesses – are hit the hardest. Many such families had just paid school fees prior to the latest lockdown and now either can’t open their businesses or can’t work due to the lockdown restrictions, leaving many unable to feed their children. Landlords are calling everyday threatening to evict entire families who have already sold all their personal belongings to put food on the table. We have to come together in these times and do everything we can to reach those in need.

Smiling Heart Africa Foundtaion is a youth led organisation based in Naguru slum area that uses yoga, music, dance and Drama to help the slum children develop and master their talents. They will identify the families most in need and distribute the relief packages accordingly.

Umbilini is an Arts, Crafts and Wellness organisation that supports artisans, preserves the ancient arts and inspires self expression.

  • 3 kg of Maize Flour
  • 2.5 kg of Beans
  • 1 Soap Bar
  • 1 Packet of Salt

The Maize flour and Beans can feed an average pf 5 people for 3 Days

Our goal is to provide the following essentials for a week for each household:

  • 4kg of Maize Flour
  • 4kg of Beans
  • 1kg of Sugar
  • 1 Ltr of Cooking Oil
  • 2 Bars of Soap

A donation of 35,700 Ugx ($10) will buy an essential pack for 1 household.
