It is often said, give people a chance and they will surprise you and am indeed not only surprised but also overwhelmed by the support rendered towards the #Food basket campaign. In just less than a week, we have been able to raise 760,000 Ugandan Shillings which is approximately 200 USD.

We are running a local fundraising campaign for the very first time and just like any first timer, we had both our doubts and fears and this has been challenged.

This "Food basket campaign" will be supporting our women beneficiaries along with their families with food and some essentials to push them through these turbulent days. Rhythm of Life is partnering with Street Lights Uganda that will be bringing on-board face masks to distribute to the women through their "Ntunga" project.

Of course you know vulnerable women are the most economically affected by this crisis as the biggest number are in the informal sector which has been hit most. This will be done through a community food basket that will supply/distribute items to these families after the lock-down.

 

You can use this link for your donation - https://www.givingway.com/organization/rhythm-of-life?context=projects on our GivingWay platform.

 

The proceeds will be used to distribute food and essential items among vulnerable women and their families in the red-light districts of Makindye Division - Kampala District Uganda.

To also supply face masks to this community as a protection mechanism against Covid-19.

To also establish six (6) hand washing points in the red-light districts that will entail a jerry can tap, soap, water and sanitizer.

 

Do not underestimate the power of giving, not matter how big or small you give you ultimately contribute towards the well- being of the red-light districts in Makindye Division in Uganda. I assure you that every single penny indeed counts!

 

Come join us!!!

Let’s make this difference in the lives of vulnerable women and their families.

A lot happens when women stand together for a common goal.

Dear Harriet,
This is a time in which I hope we can the networks of support that are so needed, more than ever obvious, especially now. The outreach you are doing creates the bridge and I wish you big success in donations coming in. "...vulnerable women are the most economically affected by this crisis". With our interconnections on World Pulse I hope that this good start becomes a solid help for the women you are reaching, and for all that our World Pulse sisters are reaching as well.
In sisterhood,
Tam

Hello, Harriet,

How are you?

What a love idea you initiated! Kudos to you and your team for organizing a local fundraising campaign. I surely hope you get more givers so more women can benefit from your food basket.

Please stay safe and stay healthy!
