Fr Silvester has just sent the following update from Uganda about the Corona Virus – My parish is called Narozari, our lady of the Rosary parish. All activity is at a standstill now due to Corona. People are forbidden from leaving their homes; supervised by the security agencies. There are cases of people being beaten up etc. Food, soap and other needs for families is becoming a big problem as people are seated at home without any financial support. We just don’t have any social security/benefits system here. Any assistance is much needed. We can purchase some soap and distribute to some critical families. We are very grateful for your support. I will be sending more updates as the situation evolves. Keep us in your prayers.

A fact about Uganda. The country has a population of 43 million & only 55 ICU beds. In rural areas clean water is scarce & soap is a luxury
