This is volume Two of the ‘Giving Stories’ during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic due to the coronavirus in Uganda. In the first issue, we brought you stories of the giving that happened between the months of March and April 2020. This volume covers giving stories that happened in the months of May and June 2020.

At the end of 2019, the world received its first case of the coronavirus. Though miles away in Wuhan, a city in China, the highly infectious virus found its way across borders and into countries like Uganda. The reaction of most countries, including Uganda, was a lockdown. Uganda went into a coronavirus-induced lockdown on March 31st, 2020. Despite the easing of the lockdown in late May, the impact of the slowed economy and trade on the lives of ordinary Ugandans remained very alarming. More and more people gave to help ease the burden of the lockdown. We are happy to bring you these stories in this second volume. This report may not have exhaustively captured all the giving that took place in Uganda during the months of May – June 2020. Our commitment, however, is to document as much of it as possible.
