With a passion for helping humanity in need, Robert Kayanja Ministries provides relief aid and sustainable support to those affected by famine, climate change, and failed crops in Karamoja.
Karamoja, a region in northeastern Uganda, has been hit hard by drought and failed crops, leaving families hungry and struggling to survive. Robert Kayanja Ministries has launched the Karamoja Cry campaign to provide much-needed relief to the people of Karamoja, who are currently facing famine due to climate change, prolonged drought, and failed crops. The campaign is being spearheaded by the Robert Kayanja Bucket Initiative, the aid and relief arm of Robert Kayanja Ministries, and aims to provide an indigenous solution to a Ugandan problem.
Robert Kayanja, the founder of the Robert Kayanja Ministries, is passionate about finding local solutions to local problems. The Karamoja Cry campaign is an indigenous solution to the famine that plagues this precious region. Robert Kayanja Ministries has always been dedicated to helping those in need. The Karamoja Cry campaign is just one example of the ministry’s commitment to providing aid and relief to those who need it most. The Robert Kayanja Bucket Initiative will continue to work tirelessly to deliver relief aid to the people of Karamoja until they can feed themselves.
The first phase of the Karamoja Cry campaign began in late July when the Robert Kayanja Bucket Initiative delivered 60 tons of a unique protein nutrient-rich blend consisting of a mixture of flour, milk, soy and calcium powders, natural sugars, and vitamins. This blend fills the hungry stomachs of over 6,000 children and adults daily.
“We cannot stand by and watch our brothers and sisters in Karamoja suffer. We are grateful for the support we have received so far. It is heartwarming to see people come together to help those in need. We believe that the Karamoja Cry campaign will make a real difference in the lives of those in need, and we are committed to providing the necessary relief aid to support them. I am proud to be Ugandan in this fine hour. We don’t stop!” – said Robert Kayannja.
However, the Robert Kayanja Bucket Initiative understood that sending food to this region was a short-term solution. To make the solution more sustainable for Karamoja, the project’s second phase began in September when three tractors were equipped with planters, hollows, and drought-resistant seeds. This will enable the people of Karamoja to farm the land and be self-sufficient.
In addition to the tractors, The Robert Kayanja Bucket Initiative sent clothes, shoes, mattresses, and tonnes and tonnes of the Elijah meal, a Holy Spirit-inspired fortified feed that has shown results in acute malnutrition recovery in a matter of days. This will provide much-needed relief to the people of Karamoja, who have been struggling to survive.
The people of Karamoja have been struggling for too long, and the Karamoja Cry campaign is a beacon of hope for the people of Karamoja until they can stand on their own feet.
