Uganda has a total population of 44.3 Million and 41% of the total population live in poverty with an income of $1.90 a day. It has the largest refugee population with more than one million refugees have fled their home countries to seek protection.
To be the breadwinner for the family as a woman is not an easy task especially with the current situation in Uganda. It is already hard for a man to provide food and basic necessities to the family, imagine how a woman could handle it alone?
Last 3rd Ramadan we have invited the single mothers to join the iftar with the students in Alban Islamic Nursery And Primary School as we witnessed the struggle they have to feed their children.
However we believe it is more comfortable for them to have iftar with their kids at home. Therefore we would like to provide them food baskets that cost $30 each.
