Where we work | Uganda
Salam Charity


Uganda, in East Africa, is faced with challenges including poverty, healthcare, water and food insecurity.

The growing population does not have widespread access to healthcare, especially in rural areas. As a result, diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis have become the most common causes of death in Uganda.

Access to clean water and sanitation is a major concern: 38 million people lack access to a reliable, safely managed source of water, and 7 million people lack access to improved sanitation solutions. This leads to waterborne diseases and hygiene-related issues. Poor sanitation, inadequate waste management, and the lack of proper toilet facilities also cause major health problems.

Many people in Uganda live in poverty, which leads to hunger and malnutrition. Many families can’t afford food after paying their basic expenses, and others have limited access to nutritious foods. Malnutrition causes serious health concerns and perpetuates the cycle of poverty.


Our initiatives are designed to address the main issues and support sustainable development to help people in Uganda break free from poverty.

Here are some of our projects:

Wheelchair Distribution:

A wheelchair costs just £150, but delivers an immeasurable impact. Providing one person with a wheelchair enables them to participate in their communities, reach education, healthcare, and employment opportunities, and ultimately improve their overall wellbeing.

Happiness Kits:

Our £20 happiness kit has developmental and mental health benefits. Each kit is packed with activities, pencils, and craft supplies to encourage children to develop their creativity and cognitive skills.

Food Packs:

We distribute food packs to provide much-needed food security in impoverished areas. Our £60 food packs are filled with nutritious ingredients like rice, oil, lentils, and sugar, and designed to meet the nutritional needs of one family for about a month.

Hot Meals:

Planned to meet an adult’s daily nutritional needs, our hot meals are served to up to 200 people in each sitting, giving them a sense of community and comfort.

Solar-Powered Borehole with Water Tank:

A solar-powered borehole has a pump which draws water from 70 foot deep and stores it in a tank. It’s a convenient and practical solution and should provide water to at least 1,000 people every day for more than 20 years.
