There has been a drought in Uganda for over two month now. Crops are drying out and this, in turn, is forcing up the price of basic essentials, like oats, at the local market.
St. Isaacs' Prep. School provides two free meals of porridge per day to its 35 students. However, without the oats to make the porridge the children are starving.
With exams coming up at Christmas time the children are working hard every day but walking long distances to school and studying on an empty stomach is almost impossible.
I'm asking for any help, however small, in order that we might continue providing free meals to our pupils.
Many thanks for taking the time to read my plea.
