Donations made during our 2020 Virtual Gala funded interventions in Uganda that will allow students to safely return to school. One intervention provided fifteen single mothers at our partner, Ray of Hope Ministry, with micro-grants. During lockdowns, they were forced to spend capital for their businesses on food for their children and were unable to reopen without assistance. Not only did you reopen each of their businesses, but you provided each family with10 kg of posho, 5 kg of rice, salt, cooking oil, and a bar of soap!
Lydia Katushabe is a single mother of two. Her children are enrolled at Ray of Hope's Primary School. Before COVID-19, she washed clothes for other household in surrounding neighborhoods. Thanks to you, she can once again provide food, education materials, and clothes for her children. Hear Lydia say thank you herself!
