COVID-19 in Namutumba

We are now seeking funding to boost the entire village again, and keep the community healthy.   Please choose this under donations!

Namutumba has had a hard time dealing with COVID-19. The pandemic has exacerbated food shortages and the need for cleaning and hygiene supplies. We have managed to raise more than $34k, which has paid for two doses of the COVID vaccine and a booster shot for every eligible person--Jews and non-Jews--in the village!

To the right are our photos of Namutumba's residents being vaccinated. Vaccinations took place at the Namutumba synagogue--built with funding from Ezra Uganda Assistance--for all villagers, including non-Jews.
