On 20th September 2022, the ministry of health of Uganda declared an Ebola outbreak which led a total lockdown of two districts: Mubende and Kasanda. This was a total concern and a collective responsibility for every one to participate in the awareness campaigns in the fight and stop spreading. FREDAfrica also participated in the campaign.
COVID-19 Mask and Soap Distribution
Like many countries and cities around the world, Uganda has asked its residents to stay home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, much of FREDAfica’s efforts in Mukono and the surrounding towns has ceased until the stay at home order is over.
We hope to leverage the networks FREDAfrica has access to in order to gather supplies to assemble masks, selling them to those who can afford to purchase them and distributing some for free to those who cannot afford them.
We will work with local police and task forces to distribute masks and soap to those in need, targeting the vulnerable and needy groups in hard to reach areas in Uganda.
Please consider helping us support our community.
Help Rebuild FREDAfrica’s Offices
We are incredibly happy and thankful to announce that we’re closing the fundraising campaign for rebuilding the offices. We received two donations since our last update which enabled FREDAfrica to purchase the remaining equipment. The team has been collecting all equipments from the stores (you’ll notice Travis sitting in one of the new chairs in the pics!) and now we are waiting for the technician to connect the computers correctly.
THANK YOU to everyone that helped us get this far. Every dollar given will have a huge impact on communities in Uganda through the work of FREDAfrica. You can stay in touch with our work through https://fredafrica.org.
Hello every one, on behalf of FREDAfrica organization, I extend our sincere thanks to all those who have lent us a hand in rebuilding our offices. So far one room is done together with tables. We now need chairs and computers to get started as working on the second room. We pray that we get a chance to raise at least $168 and sort the chairs and one printer out.
Big hug to all you especially those who have made us rise again in impacting our rural needy communities in Uganda. We still ask for your hand for more support for us to serve our needy communities. Thank you to everyone that has got us this far. Please continue to share this opportunity with your friends, families, and colleagues!
For DONATIONS, please use this gofundme campaign or use our PayPal account which found by clicking ‘give’ at the top of the page. Big hug to all of you.
FREDAfrica is a community based organisation working on improving lives of persons in rural communities in Uganda. For more details please visit FREDAfrica at www.FREDAfrica.org. The FREDAfrica offices caught fire and lost many office equipments. We ask for your support to enable us have some off of them back. The cause was electricity sparks. Fortunately no one hurt. We ask for help to have our computers and other office equipments which were burnt down.

Western Health Science Public Health Program
Western Health Science medical students, a team of nine which was here on public health programs with FREDAfrica, engaged in providing treatment through medical camp and over 1012 were reached. They also trained FREDAfrica’s VHTs on public health issues and on best approaches of handling public health. They trained 180 VHTs. Each VHT is responsible for 10 households.
Much to celebrate
Happy summer to all! We’re happy to share some pics from our community education on nutrition where we partnered with local villages to form up a nursery bed for vegetables as a demonstration centre for the community.
Also included are pictures from our community education on sanitation where some plates and cups rack’s were constructed as an example for other community members. This helps to have a better place to put plates and cups after washing them.
Furthermore, other pics are from family planing and HIV education efforts.
And finally, pictures of fruits, members of the community appreciating FREDAfrica volunteers for the great achievements for development and community engagement.
