MOROTO – Moroto district authorities have received 5000 kilograms of maize flour for distribution to vulnerable families, thanks to Synagogue Church of All Nations Uganda led by Pastor Samuel Kakande.
The food relief was delivered on Saturday morning by Pastor Kakande’s company Mechanized Agro Uganda Limited which works with artisan miners in Moroto district.
It was received by Peter Ken Lochop, the Moroto Resident District Commissioner and LC V chairperson, Andrew Napajja.
Handing over the 200 bags of maize flour containing 25kgs each, Simon Nagiro, the Spokesperson of the Mechanized Agro Uganda Limited said the food is meant to benefit the most vulnerable and those hit hardest by the COVID-19 lock down.
