How are Our Friends in Uganda?

Africa
Today we report to you from our partner agency and Juan Dobler from Uganda. In Germany, too, very little is heard about the land of chimpanzees and gorillas. And that although the people there deal with the corona situation very differently. In the blog you can find out how the Ugandans are fighting the corona virus and what hopes Juan and his team have. What is your everyday life like? Our everyday life here in Uganda has returned to normal to some extent since the general lockdown ended around 50 days ago. How is the lockdown in Uganda designed?
