Children and families around the world are having a hard time accessing food and other basic needs due the COVID-19 pandemic, but your gifts are making a big difference for children who need it most.
With your support, families are receiving emergency food boxes, and are growing fresh produce in home gardens.
In Ghana, families are using emergency savings from their CFTC supported self-help groups to purchase food for their children. Community and radio sensitization trainings have been given to raise COVID-19 safety and health awareness. As well, a dozen women bee-keeping groups, supported by CFTC donors, have harvested their honey and are not only sharing it with community members for extra food, but will be selling the honey in order to buy food for their families.
Your support in Ethiopia has helped to provide emergency food and sanitation supplies like soap and masks. As well, we supported community sensitization training on COVID-19 and safety precautions. Families in the community have also been safely sharing food with one another.
Your gifts are helping children and families in Uganda get emergency food and information to stop the virus’ spread. Sensitization training has been given to communities to inform them on the virus and how to stay safe. In addition, your support for our communities in Uganda have allowed families to attend to their gardens and grow their own food, having enough supplies for the season. Also, some education materials have been distributed to students so they can continue their studies from home.
Communities are providing emergency food boxes, and sending hunters to harvest traditional foods for distribution.
