__In the time of pandemic, finding meaning and self-reliance 
CIOC has a message for the day,- 

In an hour when many are facing despair, and when many are frozen in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic rendering them temporarily jobless, the CIOC Humanitarian Initiative is getting to work. CIOC believes the communities have the final say when it comes to sustainability. That the power of self-reliance is the key to restoring hope.

The Uganda Charity Herald received word from Mr. Abaasi Walugembe on the afternoon of May 16. Walugembe has informed the editorial that CIOC is again on the move. That the organization is moving to "the next level."

The village communities surrounding the CIOC Initiative will now mobilize the village to find a market for fresh items. All items are sold and proceeds are piped through the "Charity is our calling" or CIOC mission initative.

Buy/sell (Tunda oba Gula).
Walugembe would like you to-Send a photo of your item that you may want to sell or price.
You may contact the organization via Whatsapp at +256774099393.

The organization would like to thank you for your continued support of the initiative to redeem rural Uganda from poverty statistics through community cooperation.

The Uganda Charity Herald is a publication of The New African Living Standard news project. It was created on behalf of the CIOC Humanitarian Initiative to bring awareness to its causes.

Yet Africa is not immune to the consequences of the disease. As is true of any disease, there are and will be significant economic fallout both from the disease itself and from the quarantine and containment procedures instituted inside China and internationally. For Africa, much of that fallout will be felt almost immediately.

This is the new official web handle for the New African Living Standard. The New African Living Standard is a passion news project created out of the efforts of the FirmRock Children's Helper media department to bring Africa news by Africans and for Africans.

For more information on the original New African Living Standard as it appears via LinkedIn go to this page.

In Kiamaiko, a 13-year-old boy was likewise shot by the police. The officer was enforcing COVID-19 curfew: 

Al Jazeera reported later that the police were to investigate the killing of the child: 

France 24 also shared an interview with Kenya's president, who apologized for the "excessive" behavior of riot police:
