Live from Uganda: How COVID-19 is Impacting Smallholder Farmers
Heifer Uganda Country Director William Matovu will join Heifer International President and CEO Pierre Ferrari for a discussion on the coronavirus pandemic's impact on smallholder farmer livelihoods in Uganda.

Heifer has just released a report revealing that 97% of smallholder farmers in Uganda have seen their income drop since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Uganda has experienced supply chain disruptions and introduced movement restrictions across the country to limit the spread of the virus. This has severely impacted demand for farm products and the incomes of smallholder farmers in the country, leading to rampant food insecurity. William will discuss how Heifer Uganda has responded to this need, as well as the support smallholder farmers will need to build and maintain sustainable farm businesses post COVID-19.
