Hello Malin, Good morning,

I wanted to ask you if you have that in Sweden. We have completed the exercise for phase 5. I am sending the sheets today and I will be sending the photos slowly by slowly but Tax so much once again. The parents are so grateful with what you have done for them because they have started work. I am also strict with them to see that they use the money for work and not for any other thing and they have done so. Many of them still need working capital because many of them used their work capital for survival during the lock down

It has not been an easy exercise for me because what l have seen and discovered in the field is in manageable.Many families are in a bad situation in terms of living.So we decided to cater for single mothers (women with children but without husbands) .We have screened 15 families. I will keep on sending you photos of each family and some information about them. The most problem we have found among these families is starvetion secondly house rent . The cause of these problems is the lockdown in the country and the cafew.So we have decided to serve them food and house rent to afew families which are being chased out of houses by land Lords.Among the foods to serve we have: - posho - rice - beans - fish - milkand soap.I will send you the sheet where the family heads signed for these thing. Each family will get : - 5 kgs of posho - 5kgs of rice - 5kgs of beans - 2kgs of fish - 1kg of salt - 5kgs of sugar - 2bars of soap - 400gms of milk.That is the package we have prepared for them.

A lot of that to the 16 families who received the working capital . People were so so happy cause they did not expect what they saw. Many now remained yarning cause they need to work in order to take care of their children.

She is single she separated with the husband. Before the lockdown she was working in the evening market preparing tea, porridge and katogo in the tax park (katogo is the mixture of cassava/ matoke with beans/g.nuts

The head of this family is called Ayebazibwe Joan. She lives in Katwe . She is renting a small room where she resides with her three children.

She is a single mother .One of these children is her niece. Her sister lives in Mbale where she is married to another man . Before the lockdown ,Joan was working in a hotel in Entebe and she was stopped because of the lowliness of the business in all hotels She is now working in a small restaurant around her area. My dream now is how to get money and start my own restaurant however small it will be l hope l will be able to take care of my children. The major problem l have now is house rent l have just started working l don't know how l can clear the date of 4 months she lamented.The father of my children does not care about them because he is married to another woman so l am in God's hands.

Malin l talked about the 2 families and this is the second family. This family is in a total mess and in a total desperation. The head of this family is that old woman you can see in the photography. Her name is Namuli Rebbeca. When she begin telling her story you can not hesitate to shade tears. All those you can see are her grandchildren.She is staying in Katwe. She is renting a very small tinny and dark room where she resides with her Grand children. When you enter the room where they stay you can wonder. It has no windows it was just a store .The old lady says these are her son's children. The elder one is 16 while the youngest is 1and a half years. Their father died in a motorcycle accident during this corvid period before the lock down . He was a bodaboda rider (motorcycle for hire) Before the lockdown ,the old lady was staying in their home village. After the burrial the old lady came along with the widow and the children to the city as far as their culture is concerned After a week , the government anounced the lockdown. There was some savings which was left by her son which was used for a month and got finished . The motorcycle which he left was also sold The old had a decision of going back to her home with her grandchildren , there was no transport . After 4 moths the government opened up some public transport but it was too expensive .The widow used some of that money and told the old lady that she was going to her home village to look for help from her parents until now she has never come back . The old lady was not working and had no money to pay for house rent and taking care of the children She was being chased out of the house. Many of her son's friends were not working by that time because bodabodas were not yet allowed to operate. They advised her to sell her son's television and a radio and pay for at least 2 months which she accepted with their help.Out of that money she used 10000/= and began roasting maize in a lorry park because lorries remained transporting goods.After the 1st phase distribution, she was brought to me complaining that she has not been given food when her son has been a parent for many years . That is how l got to know that our parent has died. He died after a week when we have closed. I had already gone to my garden. After telling me the whole story l went with her to see where she resides and to talk and council the kids Reaching there , l found them in that tinny room with all their Father's things. When l asked her why they left their Father's room she said that it was too expensive for her. The elder girl had already started crying a basket of bananas going selling around the area because in the city she can not be allowed she is under age.

From what l what l experienced, my decision was to transport the old lady and her grandchildren to their home village .

Later l called her and told her my suggestion . She answered, It is not bad but even in the village l have no proper house where l can live with my grandchildren . I have been staying at the neighbourhood after my house being demolished by heavy rains in November last year . I am a widow also .All my hopes were in Mugumya to reconstruct another house me and my entire family she explained in tears l was finished and had nothing to add on.

What l have found out, 1 - there is little hope for these children to go back to school .

2 - the old lady wants so so much to go back to the village saying the city is too expensive with all those children..

So that is the second family.If there is any one out there whether individually or in a group who felt attached with this family at least she can get a three roomed house with her grandchildren.Up to now she doesn't know the where abouts of her daughter in law .

The head of this family is called Kobusinge Janet. She is the mother of that pregnant girl you see in the photo and the rest are her grandchildren. She lives in Nsambya. She is renting a small room where she resides with her children. Janat is also a single mother. She separated with her husband in Fortportal and came to the city with 2 of her children.Janet is no seen in the photo She was at her place of work where l found her to get some information about the family .The pregnant girl in the photo is her second last born. She got pregnant when she was in primary seven and she dropped out of school. She disappeared with a man . Later the man abandoned her in the house and came back to me with her child . The father does not care about his child l am the one to feed and l am the one paying school fees for the boy she explained. Now she has got a second pregnancy. The girl is weak , she is always sick l have other children to take care of but l don't have the money she added.Janet a stall of of vegetables which she runs for a living. I was much disturbed by the lockdown. I used almost all my working capital to care for the family . Before the lockdown , l was better than now she said.

The head of this family is called Namata Aida. Aida is a single mother and is a widow. She lives in Katwe. She is renting a small room where she resides with her three children. Aida is a cleaner in Nsambya hospital. Her husband died in December last year He was a carpenter.Since the father died, those 2 big g irls in the photo have never gone back to school . They curry baskets of bananas and go around the area selling so that we can get food because l am paid monthly. I use my salary to pay house rent and to pay school fees for the younger girl. My salary is not enough to pay school fees to these elder ones. I wanted also this young one at least to learn how to read and write as these ones do.
