German government (ILD) and parish of Hannberg has given support in terms of Bicycles to the Village Health Teams (VHTs). Twenty bicycles have been given out in Busaggula, a parish of Masaka Diocese through Caritas MADDO’s BBK project. This support to the VHTs is aimed at easing their services in the villages. Now that the team has gotten the bicycles, many people’s lives will be saved since the VHT can easily travel to assist the sick at all times. This will also help the health centres to ease tracking of the sick in the villages as there will be easy follow of information.
The year 2020 started in a challenging tone; this is due to COVID-19 pandemic that has left Ugandans and the whole world suffering with the virus and its associated effects. As response to this tragedy, members of Uganda Circle in Germany sent support to the vulnerable of Lwamaggwa, Ssese Islands and a great number of farmers. These people received food and other needs to support them through this ongoing lock down period caused by COVID-19.
