Sex Workers In Hoima Demand More Food Aid


Sex workers in Hoima district have been offered food after the guidelines to curb the coronavirus pandemic have left the nation under a lockdown. This is after many businesses have been closed and temporarily suspended to prevent the spread of the virus.

The government has taken the initiative to provide food aid to the vulnerable people and those incapable of supporting themselves to fight food poverty during the lockdown.

Out of the 106 registered sex workers in Hoima, only 20 have received food aid from the Hoima district taskforce. However, despite being grateful, these allege that more food aid should be brought to reach out to those that are HIV positive.
