The opposition Forum for Democratic Change party has partnered with the Citizen’s Relief Initiative (CRI), a civil society organisation, to mobilise relief for the needy people across the country.
The function is at POWESA offices along kabaka anjagala road next to Bulange Mengo where CRI also launched its food stores.
FDC’s Joyce Sebugwawo who also is the Rubaga Divisional Mayor says it is essential for everyone who has to give to those without, because the food crisis in this country is dire
The 2016 drought affected food production triggering food shortages in many parts of Uganda and the region.
The government estimates that 13 million people are in need of food relief.
