The corona virus total lock-down was a very trying time for vulnerable communities in Uganda including the KIMASA communities of Jinja. This led to the intervention of Bulikimu Kisoboka NGO Jinja which distributed relief items (food) to the communities of Kitovu, Makenke and Sakabusolo (KIMASA) in Jinja. The relief funds for the food were donated by their partners of Stichting Bulikimu Kisoboka in the Netherlands.
The food distribution exercise took place from the 21st to the 22nd of June. Maize flour and beans were distributed to over 486 beneficiaries; 6 Kisoboka families got 10kgs of maize flour and 3kgs of beans each, 450 beneficiaries got 5kgs of maize flour and 1.5kgs of beans each, 30 local leaders got each 6kgs of maize flour. A such, many lives were saved from hunger and starvation.
The beneficiaries were very happy with the food donations. They expressed their gratitude to Bulikimu Kisoboka NGO Uganda and the donors for the overwhelming support received during this trying moment of COVID 19 and lock-down. Bulikimu Kisoboka NGO Jinja Uganda would like to thank their partners of Stichting Kisoboka, Netherlands for enabling them support the vulnerable communities of KIMASA with food relief items.
