Make an impact now and help us reach our goal of $10,000 for COVID response and recovery in Uganda!

COVID-19 continues to pose a threat to refugee communities in Uganda, limiting education and job opportunities. JRS is working to ensure refugees have access to these opportunities as well as necessary physical items, and psychosocial support. 

Our priority activities are:

  • distributing food
  • rent assistance
  • supplementing emergency supplies
  • providing hygiene kits
  • installing hand-washing stations in camps with limited sanitation
  • raising awareness around COVID-19 prevention and social distancing


The Sisters of the Holy Family have provided a match of $20,000 toward the goal of $30,000.

Please help us meet our goal with a gift of $25, $50 or $100. Just $50 can supply 4 families with essential food supply kits. With your generosity on November 30th, Giving Tuesday, we can accompany some of the most vulnerable.

Consider designating your Giving Tuesday gift to JRS now, to make a difference tomorrow.
