Thanks to your generous donations many many needy families were fed. The churches in the threee distribution areas worked tirelessly through lockdown to reach out to those who were starving. Read the Blog pages to see photos of some of the recipients of food parcels.
The AWU Ugandan team worked hard to buy the food and soap and move it to the churches for distribution. They had to overcome the challenge of major flooding and land slides due to torrential rains.
We have now moved into phase 2 of our plan to feed people. To avert a famine AWU, through your support, have provided seed ready to plant next month. This is the next planting season. You can still contribute to this fund by clicking on the donate button below.
Photos of the seed distribution can also be found on the Blog pages.

The women's groups' revolving fund is vital to the women. It is through this they are able to take out small loans to build their businesses. The profits are mostly used to send their children to school and to feed their families. Many of the women look after other dependants - mostly because these dependants have been orphaned.
Please take time to visit the blog page to read some amazing testimonies from these women.
The demands on the revolving fund are many, particularly as the drought this year has impacted the women's ability to pay school fees, as most of their crops have died.
If the women are unable to get a loan from the Amaha We Uganda revolving fund, because there is no money left in it, they will go to loan sharks who charge exorbitant rates of interest.
Our vision is to have sufficient funds so no woman in need is turned down.
Buy a tree
Amahawe Uganda is passionate about trees. We continue to sell trees to do our small part to redressing climate change. We would love your help.
The "Garden of Eden" Project has begun, and our community garden next to the Amaha We Uganda library in Kasese has already seen community events, training, hospitality and tree planting.
Our plan is to have satellite tree nurseries in the areas which have been impacted by the cutting down of trees for farming and firewood. This has resulted in the soil being washed away and landslides because there are no trees to hold the soil. The answer is to replant the trees.
Your donation will change lives. At the moment people are being displaced because the deforested land has suffered from soil erosion and can no longer be farmed. Reforesting is the first step in creating a sustainable environment to support future generations. This will enable communities to stay in their homes.
Donate £5 on link below and we will send you a gift certificate to give to your loved ones. Please email us with your donation reference, email address and the names for your gift certificate, so that we can allocate your trees. (If you would like multiple certificates please include details in your email.)
