no member of the community is left behind
Uganda is experiencing significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, drop in water levels, and increased frequency of extreme weather events like floods, as well as drought, whose social economic impacts make communities very vulnerable. Currently this is only 30% of the forestland in Uganda or about 1.5 million hectares or 7% of the total land area. With deforestation estimated at 1% per annum. This means by 2054, the forested land will be no more.
World Action Fund has provided wheelchairs and prosthetics with support to 1250 beneficiaries in Uganda, many children are able to join school, men and women are able to start their business due to the available mobility devices and physiotherapy and physical works. We still need many to be supported with your support this is possible. Many who never sat and walk able able to walk normally, the longer we wait the more disability cases will increase, let’s close the gap NOW.
