Joseph has provided me with these details as to the people who have been affected, and how best to allocate the funds. It is ambitious, but one can hope:

There are 87 families currently sheltering at Musasa Primary School. Their homes are in the direction of the flood and they fear that, if it floods during the night, lives will be lost. Most of these families have young children, so they shall need mosquito nets, jerricans, food, and soap, etc.

Other people affected are those who have food crops along the river. When it flooded all crops washed away (beans, sweet potatoes, matoke, cassava, fruit trees, groundnuts, etc.). They are staying in their homes, some on high ground, but will need to replant their crops. They can be provided with hoes, pangas, posho, jerricans, etc.

In Kyarumba center, about 15 houses were affected. Seven were totally taken away. Several others had their foundations broken, leaving them hanging. We can support them with 5 ironsheets to those that lost houses, and remaining can get 3 bags of cement each.
