Several of our board members have graduated this year! What an accomplishment!
Celebrating during these difficult times seems not the best option, but our graduates decided that there is a good way to celebrate their achievement by supporting one of our Ugandan partners, One Village At A Time (OVAAT). OVAAT manages a youth center at the Luuka District, South East Uganda, which has become one of the main points of health assistance in the area since COVID-19 cases have seen a dramatic increase in the last month. Unfortunately, PPE like masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and soap are lacking, putting especially health workers in danger while trying to assist the people coming to the center.
Vaccine access is limited, indeed high-income countries still retain the majority of vaccines so far produced leaving other countries in the dangerous zone. SOGH does not have the capacity to help on the ground, but our graduates would like to ask you to congratulate them by donating to our fundraise in support of OVAAT and its health workers facing this critical time. We all know what happens when health systems are under pressure and at risk of collapsing, so any help we can give to our Ugandan friends is fundamental.
Please join us in celebrating our graduates and the Ugandan health workers who are doing so much to contain the pandemic!
Here is what your contribution can buy:
- 50 surgical masks = 40 SEK
- 3 bottles of hand sanitizer = 70 SEK
- 5 boxes of gloves = 120 SEK
We know how difficult this time has been for many of us, but helping each other is what will make us go through this. Distant But Together. Our kindness for one another can be more viral than the virus. Let’s be our Best Humanity. A big thanks to all who will donate from the SOGH and OVAAT teams.
