3 meals a day food security. Go to bed on a full stomach!
Creator: Adrienne ShawDo you know what it's like to be hungry, really hungry? For many elderly people in Uganda this is a daily occurrence. If they are too frail to grow crops then they have no food. If the rain washes their crops away then they have no food. If the sun dries up their crops then they have no food. If they have grandchildren in their care then they sacrifice their food for the sake of the children. The war in Ukraine, global warming and COVID all have a massive knock on effect on the availability of food, ROTOM aims to ensure all our vulnerable seniors have at least 2 ideally 3 meals a day. Will you help us provide this food to those who need it by donating as much as you can£0.00 donated
