PaCT Responds to CORONAVIRUS disease 2019
Just like the rest of the world, Uganda has been gravely affected by COVID 19 pandemic after having registered her first case on 21st March 2020. This was followed by a total Country’s lockdown and nationwide night-time curfew from 1st – 14th April 2020 with an additional extension of 21 days from 15th April to 5th May 2020. While these lockdowns are necessary measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic like they proved successful in China, such economic interruptions are unprecedented in many ways and as such do require state and all stakeholder support to vulnerable households in economic and health aspects.

What people say
There was so much joy in the children's faces when they received their packages that it really shows the difference this sponsorship makes to their livelihoods. There is also the argument that giving them these materials has helped to increase their learning ability.
Having worked in the charity sector for a number of years I was so impressed by the charity, they are forward thinking and innovative in their approaches and engage the communities they are supporting and strive to help them become as sustainable as possible.
