The Leadership and members of North America Masaaba Cultural Association – NAMCA, together with Bamasaaba in UK - IMUKA, stand with the people of Bugisu who have lost their lives and property due to the floods of last week.
At least 25 people have died in mudslides and floods triggered by heavy rain. Whole Villages have been flooded with water, mud and stones, damaged roads and bridges, and landslides.
These floods have caused severe damage to life, property, homes, businesses, and crops. These losses will affect the livelihoods of many people in the region. People are hungry, thirsty, and living in makeshift shelters on higher ground or with generous persons who are letting them stay into their homes while they try to rebuild their own lives.
In response to this tragedy, the masaaba of North America (USA and Canada) through NAMCA, together with UK Bamasaaba– IMUKA has launched a fundraising campaign through which we hope to provide relief for those affected by these tragic circumstances.
For this purpose, A zoom conference is scheduled for Sunday August 07, 2022, at 7:00 PM East African Standard Time. We invite all people from across the globe to come and join us in this effort to help our people.
We pray for all the affected communities and we stand with them in these trying times
