The Uganda Red Cross Society (URCS) is seeking for sh1.8b to provide emergency assistance to people affected by floods in Kasese District. The appeal is targeting 18,000 people (3, 000 households). URCS actual assessements put the number of people affected to 19, 161 people.
The funds will cater for provision of shelter like tarpaulins and construction kits, essential household items (cups, plates, jerrycans, mosquito nets, laundry soap, blankets, saucepans, buckets), reviving livelihoods through provision of seeds and tool kits.
