During the past few months worldwide attention has been focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. For us at WaterBridge Outreach it became clear that, as the pandemic spread, our priority would be to assist our partner organizations with their immediate needs - providing the basics of life (food and water) to families in their communities. All of us are struggling during this unprecedented time but for those already living on the brink of life, in poverty, without food security, without access to healthcare, and without access to clean water (to drink and to wash hands), with minimal (if any) government support, the need is acute. With your support we have been able to channel funds to our partner organizations to assist them during the pandemic. We understand that this is a stressful time for all and your support has been greatly appreciated.
The Chain Collaborative - Karama Education Center, UGANDA. Karama Education Center has been closed during the pandemic and teachers have been encouraging lessons at home and paying (socially distanced) visits to families to follow-up with students in light of the complete lack of online education options in rural Uganda. The COVID pandemic has shuttered schools around the world. And sadly, many children have lost the one place where they received their most consistent and nutritious meal of the day. Now Africa Initiative has been able to continue growing food for families in KEC's organic garden, while also collaborating with families to start home gardens to grow their own fresh vegetables.
Stay Safe, Be Kind, Be Calm.
