Funded by: RISE UC

Due to the onset of COVID-19, both Nepal and Uganda underwent a national lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus. Due to this lockdown, many acid and burn violence survivors were not able to work and provide food for themselves and their families.

To provide immediate relief during this time, RISE UC hosted a COVID-19 fundraiser in which we raised over $1500.  We sent these funds to our partner organizations in Uganda and Nepal, who were able to provide “food packs” that contained items such as rice, daal, potatoes, beans, posho, biscuits, salt, sugar, cooking oil, sanitary pads, and soap for 32 survivors.
