Covid19, women with disabilities and rural areas

I am Betty, the Foundering Director, BUDIVEA, in Buikwe District Uganda. We are happy to have submitted our COVID-19 grass root proposals. In Buikwe, disabled girls and women during this COVID-19 pandemic have experienced high sexual violence and men who have done this bad sexual act have gone freely. We wish to learn from other members, how have you able to empower girls and women with hearing impairment (Deaf) to come out and speak? Secondly, how are you involving the local government to intervene. Thank you for your ideas

Joycemeyer.org has a ministry for sex abuse and sex trafficking and I know she would help in any way she can. I am a victim of rape and I know what is is like when no one helps. Joyce has been a voice of encouragement for years. I am praying for you and the girls. With hope for justice, Ingrid

Hi Daniel, I can imagine what you are going through as you seek for support of single parents. How many are you reaching to and what interventions are you undertaking? Best of luck too. Betty; BUDIVEA

Hello Ingrid, thank you so much the linkage and I will connect with Joyce Meyer Ministries

Hi Ingrid, I have opened RANN website but it only helps only USA based members. All in all thank you for the care and support

I would like you to look for the bus they discuss in the link attached which does distribute supplies and books. Also, the embassy may have other resources for you. I will keep praying for you and looking for you. Look through the links below. Join Kiva.org and you will see your life change for the better. I will start you off when you get set up. God never forgets anyone and he remembers you and everyone in your community! Proverbs 31:10-31 Be blessed!
