This week we actually wanted to start the “Skull Bowl Project” for our Uganda project. In cooperation with our partner Jack, from the “Uganda Skateboard Union”, we will add a bowl to the skate park. Since the project has been so successful so far, we will also send additional volunteers to Uganda this year to support the locals in the weekly workshops, so that even more kids have the opportunity to take part. Our project coordinator Gabu wanted to head to Kampala this week to start construction. The opening was planned for June … BUT ….
Quote: “The government of Uganda has introduced improved screening and quarantine measures in response to the global public health threat posed by COVID-19. Travelers should be prepared for travel restrictions to apply without notice. The Ministry of Health announced that it has imposed a self-quarantine obligation on all asymptomatic travelers arriving in Uganda who have been in the following countries in the 14 days prior to arrival in Uganda. Travelers from the following countries are affected: China / France / Germany / Iran / Italy / South Korea / Spain “End of quote.
Gabu cannot fly to Kampala, because otherwise he would have had to spend 14 days in quarantine at a local hospital at his own expense.
