Update: Helping New Mothers in Uganda
Thanks to the ongoing generosity of people like you, the Emergency Coronavirus Appeal is already having an impact on vulnerable people across the globe – including new mothers, like Kwagala from rural Uganda.
In Uganda, the lockdown has seen public transport banned – including ‘boda boda’ motorbikes, which many people rely on to travel. For rural communities, this makes accessing vital services – markets and healthcare facilities, for example, a real struggle. During this period of lockdown, All We Can’s local partner in Uganda has been providing regularly sanitised bicycles for rural communities so that they can continue to visit markets to buy and sell food, and access health services. Access to a bicycle meant that Kwagala was able to safely travel with her husband to a local health centre to give birth to her newborn baby. ‘I am now confident that in case of any medical challenges in my life, they can put me on the bicycle and get me to the nearest medical facility instead of walking on foot,’ explains Kwagala.

Launch of the Emergency Coronavirus Appeal
Can you imagine having to face Coronavirus without access to running water and soap? In cramped and unhygienic conditions, where social distancing simply isn’t possible?
This is the reality facing people living in some of the world’s poorest communities right now. All We Can, the Methodist Church in Britain and World Development & Relief have launched an Emergency Coronavirus Appeal, to help equip vulnerable communities across the globe to combat Coronavirus (COVID-19).
For communities with weaker healthcare systems, or who lack access to clean water and handwashing facilities, the impact of Coronavirus will be catastrophic. That’s why we’re asking: please do all that you can to help save lives today.
All We Can, the Methodist Church in Britain and World Development & Relief are responding across the globe, enabling vulnerable communities to access the support they need. We are working to maintain essential health services, deliver soap and hygiene items, and provide vital community healthcare education to Rohingya refugees living in the camps of Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh; in Cameroon, internally displaced families are being provided with vital hand sanitiser to help protect themselves from the virus; and in Uganda, families who have no means of accessing markets following the banning of public transport by the Ugandan government are being lent regularly sanitised bicycles.
Anna Roughley, All We Can’s Humanitarian Aid and Partnerships Manager said ‘For communities living in crowded and cramped conditions, like the refugee camps of Cox’s Bazar, or those serving on the frontline in hospitals ill-equipped to deal with this crisis, Coronavirus poses a real and very urgent threat. I urge you to do all that you can today to help save lives around the world by donating to this global response.’
All We Can, the Methodist Church in Britain and World Development & Relief have already begun responding by providing essential grants to help churches overseas meet the challenges posed by Coronavirus, as well as providing staff on the frontline of Maua Methodist Hospital in Kenya with essential personal protective equipment. Anything that you give today with help us do more of this vital work.
We know that many people are facing financially difficult situations at this time – and so we are only asking you to donate if you able to. Any gift, no matter how small, will help equip vulnerable communities to face Coronavirus.
Pray. Give. Save Lives.
Pray with us
God of all grace,
You have richly blessed us and even now, in this time of trial,
We recognise how much we have, and that all we have, we receive from you.
God of all grace,
We pray for all those who do not have the home comforts we take for granted,
For whom self-isolation is impossible, for whom there is no health care system,
No support structure,
No personal protective equipment.
As this deadly disease spreads into the developing world,
Into the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar,
Into parts of the world ill-equipped to respond,
We pray for your grace, O God.
We are grateful for the courage of all seeking to respond,
To fight and delay the impacts of the coronavirus.
We grieve with those who are grieving,
We weep with those who are weeping.
But we ‘do not grieve as those who have no hope.’
Give us hope, we pray.
