First Lady Urges Mothers to Fast, Pray to Kick COVID-19 Out of Uganda
The first lady, Janet Museveni has called upon mothers to join hands in prayer, fasting and intercession for divine help in winning the battle against COVID-19.
In a recorded message, Mrs Museveni said mothers need to come together and pray for the nation.
She makes reference to the intervention made by mothers in the late 80s’ when the HIV scourge was at its peak with double-digit prevalence rates in Uganda.
Mrs Museveni adds that just as women were able to give orphaned children hope under UWESO, COVID-19 presents them with another opportunity to bring about change and defeat the new Global enemy.
On Friday, President Museveni announced that the number of cases had increased to 18 after four more people tested positive.
Globally, the number stands at over 537,000 cases.
