Emergency Food Relief for Buyange Village
Ever since the pandemic began, LWB has been providing emergency food relief to vulnerable children in the regions where we work. This past month, we distributed essential food supplies in the Namatumba district of Eastern Uganda. This region has seen frequent episodes of severe hunger and childhood malnutrition and was hit last year by devastating hailstorms which destroyed hundreds of homes. Our team was determined to get critical food supplies to as many children in the Buyange village as possible. Bags of rice, beans, and corn flour were loaded onto trucks, and our team began the three-hour journey into the countryside.
