Lack of transport means (Vehicle) has made it very challenging for the union to effectively and efficiently implement its activities which includes; participation in national level awareness raising campaigns, following up of cases of rights abuse in the communities, conducting legal aid clinics in the different communities where we work and transporting some of our clients referred for medical rehabilitation to either Gulu regional referral hospital,
the above has also so far led to loss of lives of two members of the organosations in the names of late Florence Adong and Late Lily Arao who were knocked by motorcyclist riders on their way from community outreaches.
We therefore requesting for either inkind or financial support to enable us acquire a van for our organisation.
