The coronavirus pandemic is also hitting us very hard here in Uganda. Although none of our orphanage is obviously affected yet, but economically it hits us the hardest. People are starting to hoard everything and as a result, food prices are skyrocketing. In certain parts of the country and also here, hunger is slowly spreading.
If the virus should catch us too, it will suddenly spread among everyone. And we wouldn’t even be able to pay our hospital bills. And since most of the children also have a pre-existing typhoid fever caused by our contaminated water, God only knows if they would survive.
We would like to do a bulk purchase for our 69 children here and then go to a self-imposed quarantine.
We need your help now more than ever.
