Donors and supporters are invited to join trustees at a short webinar to hear more about the successes and challenges of our team in Uganda, in particular in the face of COVID-19.
WATSAN’s trustees would be delighted to welcome you to our first online donor event from 3-4pm on Saturday 21st November, where we will talk about how the charity is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in Uganda.
Our Chair Ian Bensted writes: “A global pandemic affects our partners in Uganda as well as all of us here. It continues to play havoc with the whole cycle of WATSAN’s activities from fund-raising in UK, through to teaching and training activities in Uganda.
“We have only been saved from disaster by our regular donors here, and special dispensation for vehicle movement and construction work since Uganda was locked down in April. COVID has devastated an already weak economy, and it is the poorest and most vulnerable who suffer first and most.”
The webinar will include an update from WATSAN’s Field Director in Uganda, Eric Baingana, and an open floor for attendees to ask the trustees questions about the project.
Everyone is welcome, so please pass the invitation on to anyone in your networks who might be interested. To attend, you need to have the Zoom app installed on your computer or device, and register in advance using the link below.
If you can’t join, don’t worry – we will make a recording available afterwards!
