Message from Member of Uganda Parliament
Dear REACH fraternity,
It has been gratifying speaking on phone this morning to Mrs. Joyce Wanda who is in Nametsi, Bududa, the very place where the landslide occurred!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you very much for your concern and efforts to support the people of Bududa and this particular time, the landslide victims!
As a representative of Bududa district in the parliament of Uganda, I have no words to express the gratitude for all the assistance that you have marshaled towards this cause!! I have visited the displaced peoples’ camp and found REACH, FIMRC and Save the Children in Uganda running the health unit, and constructing kitchen sheds among the many other activities going on at the camp. Putting a system in place to cater for all the emergencies has not been easy. The Government of Uganda together with many well-wishers including the Red Cross Society which is at the forefront of the humanitarian aid, Development Partners are grappling with the medium and long-term solution to the issue.
Once again thank you and have a Blessed EASTER.
Wonekha, Olive MP
