  1. Christmas Gifts for Seniors: A Thermos Flask

    Mukono District, Uganda

    Creator: Austin Awadzi

    This Christmas, ROTOM would like to give a 2-litre aluminium stainless steel thermos flask to each supported elderly person. This type of thermos flask is best suited for our seniors because; - It’s durable and will, therefore, last a senior and their family a long time. - It has a good hot and cold performance, with the ability to keep hot things hot and cold things cold, depending on the seniors’ preference. - It’s easy to use and maintain; it has a wide mouth, which makes for easier cleaning and filling. - It has a secure cap so that even if the flask gets knocked around or accidentally, it won’t leak. - It is lightweight and seniors will be able to easily carry it from one place to another. - Lastly, this stainless steel thermos flask does not have a metallic taste in the mouth or residual odours. It, therefore, doesn’t change the taste of whatever is stored in it. Each thermos flask costs £20. We invite you to donate to make an impact in the day to day living of one or more seniors. THANK YOU

    ROTOM has embarked upon a Food Campaign that will provide basic food items to seniors and their grandchildren. Our goal is to give a CARE PACKAGE to each of the 900 older persons we support for the next 2-3 months to help them cope with the impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown, which has significantly reduced their ability to source food. Each Care Package costs £22 and contains 20 Kilograms (approximately 44 lbs) of Maize flour,10 kilograms (22 lbs) of Beans, 0.5 kilograms (1.1 lbs) of Salt, 1 kilogram (2.2 lbs) of Sugar, a packet of Matches and a bar of Soap. Can you help by donating money to pay for one or more care packages?
