Noté Karacel Uganda
Special Appeal: Devastating Floods Hit Alenga
Due to persistent heavy rains, Lake Victoria overflowed its banks sending flood waters down the Nile River affecting many communities along the river including Alenga, home of Note Karacel families and initiatives. Many farmlands, homes, roads and livelihoods in Alenga have been inundated and destroyed by floodwaters.
The Nile has completely overtaken and devastated the fish pond, a source of income for educational resources, forced the piggery to be moved further away from the river, and destroyed many crops. Ferries across the Nile are inaccessible. If the water continues to rise, the road from Alenga to Apac, the nearest city, will become impassable thus cutting off Alenga Parish entirely.
We have given temporary support to some of the victims most impacted by sending money to purchase food staples like beans and maize flour, cooking oil and salt. When the waters recede, we will share other resources as needs become identified.
If you are able to assist Note Karacel in accompanying our sisters and brothers in Alenga, Uganda as they navigate high waters and much loss, your donations will be put to good use.
