As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to suffocate the globe, the Rugby governing body of Uganda (URU) has been promised food relief worth €5000 from Rugby Africa, Africa’s Rugby governing body.

A statement on Uganda Rugby Union facebook page post reads;

“Rugby Africa recently announced €170,000 for food and medical relief to be shared amongst all its Unions with caps of between €2000 and €5000 per Union. Uganda Rugby Union plans to use these funds to provide more food relief to our key stakeholders; the Clubs. Rugby Africa has today confirmed that URU will receive €5000 and we are grateful. We shall update the Clubs once we receive the funds”.

All member federations are eligible for this financial aid to support their rugby communities. Requests from the fund can go towards distribution of food packages, meals, or PPE (masks, hand sanitiser gels, etc.), emergency food and medical support for clubs and players in their respective countries. Federations may use funds depending on their needs, while the financial aid granted will consider the size of the federation and its level of development.

Khaled Babbou, the Rugby Africa President, said:

“As centers of shared values, and spaces for individual and group development, our federations play a key role in rugby’s success in Africa. More than ever, the current health crisis is having a major impact on all federations and their clubs, their coaches, and their players – the pillars of Rugby Africa. This financial support supplements a range of initiatives already rolled out to boost our rugby community and highlights the shared values and cooperation dear to our organisation. We must also stand together and continue to do everything we can to support those combating the pandemic.”

Rugby Africa is planning safe, practical protocols at a local level to get back on the playing field and TV screens. The whole community is keen for play to resume. However, the priority remains to help federations deal with this complex situation as best as possible, and ensure health and safety for all.
