A DEVASTATING SECOND WAVE OF CORONAVIRUS IN UGANDA HAS CAUSED A SHARP RISE IN ILLNESS AND DEATH.
This new wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is already proving to be far more widespread and severe than Uganda saw in 2020.
Hospitals have been running out of beds and oxygen supplies, with health services around the country overwhelmed by a sharp rise in demand.
People living in the poorest and most disadvantaged communities are suffering most, with limited healthcare. Many who have avoided the virus are struggling to work during lockdown and unable to feed their families.
We request those who can give to our appeal for Uganda, help us respond to urgent and desperate needs.
