A Bridge to Kyarumba

Flooding of the River Nyamugasana through Kyarumba, Uganda on May 7

has taken out homes, business, and crops. Fortunately, no lives were lost. Musasa Primary School is on some of the highest ground, so it’s safe and being used as a shelter for displaced people. If you would like to assist the rebuilding efforts in Kyarumba, we would be immensely grateful for cash in any amount, and well-wishers of every stripe.


GoFundMe Update #3

Kyarumba is a very large coffee-growing area. The growers are members of Bukonzo Joint Union Co-op, which markets their coffee beans around the world. As it happens, most of the growers are women who depend on this livelihood to support their families. Cleanup may take a while here. And many will have to replant.

Update to the Update: Since the above was posted, one of their buyers, Salt Spring Coffee in British Columbia, has made a significant donation directly to Bukonzo Joint and will also organize a fundraising campaign with their customer base. https://saltspringcoffee.com
