President’s Note – Thank you!

I want to thank the 55 donors who supported CanUgan Disability Support via the 2020 Great Canadian Giving Challenge last month. Together we raised $6,550 from this online appeal, which supports the purchasing of assistive devices (wheelchairs, white canes, crutches etc) for persons with disabilities.

A big shout out is in order to Robert, Peter and Joseph, our intermediary team on the ground in Kasese Uganda, who work closely with the Kasese and District Union of Persons with Disabilities (KADUPEDI) in identifying recipients for assistive devices. They ensure that men and women, boys and girls, young and old from different villages in Kasese district, directly benefit.

As we all know 2020 has been a challenging year to say the least. The impact of a pandemic coupled with a devastating flood in the spring have made times very difficult for persons with disabilities. So to our donors we say thanks again. Your financial support means a lot to CanUgan Disability Support.
