– Fiona Madraa, Seed Effect Uganda Country Director
Fiona has worked with Seed Effect for the past few years, serving on our Senior Management Team. She stepped into the role of County Director earlier this year and has done a fantastic job leading our team of over 50 full-time staff through a difficult and challenging season.
While Uganda is currently in the middle of its second lockdown, we wanted you to be able to hear directly from the field about the present situation, how it has impacted our staff and members, and the ways Seed Effect is adapting to respond.
- Current restrictions (limited movement, time of operation curfew, how other NGOs are limited from reaching the refugees, food rations, etc.).
- How Seed Effect’s COVID-19 response from 2020 prepared us for this present time and set us up in such a way that we have been able to continue to serve our existing members and even start new groups. Between June and July, more than 50 new groups were formed!
- Ways you can be praying for our staff on the field in Uganda as they serve as the hands and feet!
