I want to keep you updated on the status in Uganda.  As I get new information, I will get it out to you.  You can get these updates through our newsletters or by following us on Facebook.

The Ugandan government has extended the lock-down until May 5th. Schools will not be able to open until at least then. Most stores are closed unless they sell food or healthcare items. Transportation is severely limited. No passenger cars or motorcycle transport allowed. Markets have mandated social distancing rules. Unemployment is incredibly high, with no unemployment insurance. Food prices have skyrocketed.

I got this from a friend of ours serving at New Hope Uganda, "These restrictions are very hard on the vast majority living hand to mouth and a matter of life and death when someone is sick, injured, or in labor and are not allowed to move to the hospital without first receiving written permission from the local councilman. Please pray for protection over Ugandans in the slums (where they can't even plant a garden for food), in rural areas (where everything is remote), in abusive or neglectful situations, etc."

I also found the information below on a Uganda news website. The numbers in Uganda are flattening.  The lock-down is working to curb the virus.  Zero cases in the last 4 days.  Remember, Uganda is the size of Colorado, but has 42 million people. And only 55 ICU beds and 35 ventilators.


****************************************** 

On Monday, 639 samples tested negative for the novel coronavirus, the health ministry said.
 
Here is a summary of the coronavirus situation in Uganda updated by the health ministry:
 
• Confirmed cases of COVID-19 stand at 54 in Uganda
• Seven recoveries
• 231 individuals under institutional quarantine
• 1,302 cumulative contacts were listed
• 573 contacts to confirmed cases have completed 14 days followup
• 729 contacts to confirmed cases are currently under followup
• A cumulative of 5,664 samples have been tested

The picture below shows a marketplace in Kampala.  Vendors have been forced to space out for social distancing and attendance is limited.

True Impact Ministries is doing what we can to help the children and families in our care. Jeff was able to get a cargo truck to transport supplies to some families in dire need (see pictures below).

With the increased cost in food, we can use your support. Please consider visiting www.TrueImpactMinistries.com and clicking the Donate button. And please continue to pray.
