Teso Development Trust
Over the past 20 years, the people of Teso and Karamoja have often suffered from being marginalised as well as from a lack of resources, drought and famine, conflicts and cattle raiding.
The KWON committee met this week and after a long discussion we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the November sale. We felt that due to the rising cases locally, the risks to shoppers, volunteers and committee are too high at the moment. We will spend the next few months completing risk assessments and reviewing layout, ventilation and flow in the hope that by spring we will have a comprehensive picture of how we have faired through the winter with all the other viruses that are around. We understand that this will be disappointing for a lot of people but we feel we need to put the safety of everyone at the top of our list of priorities.
