Kairos' response to COVID-19 (updated 8.3.21)
The global impact of coronavirus has been significant. The first case of COVID-19 was identified in Uganda on 21st March, 2020 and the ministry of health immediately issued mandates and precautionary measures to abide by. As an organization, Kairos made the decision to suspend courses. We resumed courses 7th July 2020 at half capacity with the requirement of masks, hand washing, and social distancing. All programs are resuming with modifications made to attend to safety protocols.
Though the world is returning to "normal" with the release of vaccines, Uganda is still struggling with rising cases and increased deaths. Uganda underwent a second lockdown from 18th June 2021 until 31st August 2021. Please keep Uganda in your prayers as we navigate the continued strains of a pandemic in a developing area. Specifically, we ask for your prayers over our leadership, staff, and students. Even though there are many uncertainties ahead, we know that the Lord is in control and we are believing that we will be more unified and stronger on the other side.
We also acknowledge the economic impact this virus has had globally and have set further boundaries around our financial resources to make our donor's dollars stretch further. Kairos is in need of monthly partnerships to continue supporting our students in this unprecedented time. If you are interested in contributing financially, please follow the link below.
