It is not unusual here to have the occasional person requesting help with medical bills, school fees or provision of a job, but lately we are faced with an increasing number of requests.
Many people are struggling to provide for the basic needs of their families. Cost of staple foods and petrol have risen greatly.Sugar alone has doubled in price in just two weeks.
High unemployment, high inflation rates and a poor dollar exchange rate is impacting everyone.
Power and water cuts are becoming more frequent driving up prices as well.
There are no easy answers, but it is not easy to watch people suffer. Pray for wisdom & compassion for us as we respond to individuals and also remember the leaders of Uganda, that they would be able to make changes that will help the people of this country.
