AKF has been working with women and youth focussed Disabled Persons Organisation's (DPOs) in Uganda and in particular those that operate as network organisations. These network organisations have allowed us to be able to reach more people, and this is particularly important during COVID-19, when face to face communication is restricted. Women DPOs have formed networks at community level and have been able to reach some vulnerable women with disabilities through these already-established support systems. Martha was able to locate a community member who recorded this video using their smart phone. Here she tells us how the money she had received from the National Union of Women with Disabilities of Uganda (an AKF partner) has been extremely helpful during these difficult circumstances.
