Child's i Foundation in Uganda has donated bicycles, smartphones, face masks and bottles of sanitizer to volunteers in Makindye division, Kampala to support them in their work to "sensitize residents about the spread of COVID-19" and so that the volunteers can "reach places that are inaccessible" and give timely reports on the needs of the community, particularly vulnerable children and families, according to this article from the Daily Monitor. "Apart from bicycles and smartphones, Mr Mukholi [Child i Foundation’s country representative] also said that they will provide intensive active family support referrals to emergency response services and continue raising awareness about Covid-19."

“Making families, not orphans remains our mission in these uncertain times, and we are putting a great deal of emphasis on ensuring safety in the face of Covid-19 for every member of our staff and community,” said Mukholi.
