A family in Bulambuli district has offered to host 37 victims of the recent landslides.  

Fresh landslides triggered by heavy rains triggered landslides in Bulambuli district on August 27th, 2019 displacing dozens of families whose house were destroyed.

The landslides buried homes in Busia, Bugatisa and Bunansufa Parishes in Bulaago Sub County and Gombe Parish in Lusha Sub County. Many of the victims were left with nowhere to turn for help. 

Now, Beatrice Nabuyoga, a resident of Luzira village, Busiya parish in Bulambuli district and her bedridden husband have sheltered some of the victims in their home.

Nabuyoga, a peasant farmer says her family decided to offer about 10 empty rooms in their home to host the landslide victims after seeing many of them suffering with nowhere to sleep.

She however, says they are challenged by lack of food and beddings, adding that even the house is too small to accommodate the 37 victims.  

Nabuyoga wants the responsible officers to come to the rescue of the landslide victims by providing clothes, beddings and relief food, which is their biggest problem at the moment.
