Self Help Africa helps to promote and implement long-term rural development in Africa

A Radio Ulster Appeal on behalf of Self Help Africa

Self Help Africa Northern Ireland supports rural projects in Uganda. Before the Covid pandemic, the charity had been working with women farmers who were selling produce to help support their families. However, as part of its response to the pandemic, Self Help Africa Northern Ireland has been enhancing its Wash programmes. These provide help with access to water and sanitation and advice on what people can do to limit the spread of Covid-19. The charity is also providing dignity kits and sanitary materials for women and girls and containers to help people transport and store water at home.

For more information about the work of Self Help Africa Northern Ireland, please visit the charity’s website. You can also sign up to one of its online events or find out how to fundraise for the charity.
