From the onset of 30th Jan, 2020 when the World Health Organisation declared the outbreak of the deadly Corona Virus a pandemic and a public emergency of international concern. The Uganda government reacted fast by establishing a 3 months long general lockdown on 30th March for the entire country and by this declaring various restrictions including restricted movements and promoted social distancing. Uganda consequently confirmed its first case of the SarsCov2 virus on March 22, and the numbers have risen since then including some deaths. However, the lockdown and the ensuing restrictions have had unprecedented impact on the livelihoods of Ugandans. The case of domestic violence in Uganda has registered severe challenges as there has been a hike in domestic violence with a series of deaths recorded as a result.

Terizina Community Foundation has stepped up to this peripheral epidemic of domestic violence to help salvage sanity in homes and see to it that people live safe and happy lives. We have embarked on community sensitizations that are based on the guidelines as set out by world health organization. Click here to see guidelines. We have gone further to offer asylum and counselling to people that have been affected by domestic violence.

The government of Uganda has taken many strides in managing the COVID virus including setting up government owned textile production plants to make masks. This has led to the mass distribution of masks countrywide helping a vast population of Ugandans get acess to masks which cost a minimum of 2000 Uganda shillings ($.54 US dollars). This might seem cheap but it is actually not affordable to 21.4% Ugandans who live below the poverty line, and to about 7% unemployed youths who are fit to work, and 85% of young people that are below 18 years.

Terizina Community Foundation has labored to distribute masks to various people in the Gulu community as masks from the government fell short on supply. As students get back to school, we have also ensured that we give masks to schools to supply to students to ensure that they are enabled to attend school while observing the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) set up by the Ministry of Health of the Uganda government.

COVID19 has revealed a huge gap in communication. Infact some people have called it an "infodemic", we have made initiative to print sensiitization information posters to help communities do what is required to avert the COVID pandemic. We intend to make posters in the loal languages of the North to help the local community understand how to protectively arm themselves better.
