Urgent need in Namalemba

Our link person Rachel Butterfield has alerted us to the plight of our brothers and sisters in Namalemba.

The rains were two months late, attributed in part to tropical cyclone Idai in southern Africa, which drove moisture away from the East Africa region. Planting has not been completed in most of Uganda, while crops in the south are currently experiencing poor germination and moisture stress.*

In Namalemba the drought made it impossible to plant crops; crops that would normally be grown as the mainstay of both nutrition and trading ability.
We were told that many people are starving.

This Sunday there will be a short presentation at the start of the morning service.
Donations can be made by cash or cheque (payable to St Mary’s church Wivenhoe) to help the people of Namalemba to buy staple foods.
A little money goes a very long way in Uganda…
