/Soap making and supporting survivors in Uganda
June-August 2020 then April-July 2021
Omoro Districts, Northern Uganda
In partnership with Golden Women Vision in Uganda
Golden Women Vision in Uganda (G.W.V.U) tries to meet the urgent needs of survivors and the most vulnerable. The main areas of work of the organization include: health, education, livelihoods, human rights, access to justice and gender equality.
Covid-19 has increased the level of vulnerability of women and young people affected by war and gender-based violence. This required immediate support to prevent people from developing chronic trauma as a result of war, gender-based violence and Covid-19.
The project :
This project aims to provide support to 150 of the most vulnerable needy households in Gulu and Omoro , Northern Uganda who are severely affected by Covid-19. G.W.V.U will support them by raising awareness about the Covid-19 outbreak, helping with the production of liquid soap, and providing food and medical assistance.
We continue supporting this project in 2021 by helping 200 households that have directly suffered the consequences of the Covid-19 epidemic. G.W.V.U supports them locally through the production and marketing of liquid soap, in order to provide food and medical assistance.
