Address Plot 90 Kireka Wakiso District

KAFOC supported 59 households which were affected by floods in Bbiina Community with blankets and bed sheets for the children. The affected families are living on the shores of lake Victoria in the villages of Portbell, Pandapyer, Luzira, Kirombe and Kasokoso in Kampala and Wakiso Districts. Vendors and residents in these villages are living in uncertainty because the floods have submerged markets, the landing site and residential houses. A big number of houses, shops and food stalls have all been  plunged into the water. This has caused untold devastation in the affected communities as many have lost their Socio-economic well being. When it comes to the well being of children, this has not been spared as Play grounds for children have been filled up by floods and the children have lost their social life which is very vital to their holistic development. Floods of this magnitude have not been seen before and were never envisaged and to that effect, government authorities (NEMA, KCCA, Ministry of water and environment) have urged the affected residents to find safer places for their habitation. Over 295 children in the 59 supported families are negatively impacted by floods in the mentioned villages.
