About sh4.5b is needed to help people affected by the landslides in Bududa district, Uganda Red Cross has revealed.

URCS said the funds would help support the affected people, staying with host families, relatives and friends in districts: Sironko, Mbale, Manafwa, Kapchorwa, Bukwo, and Bulambuli.

"We have assessed their needs, one of the things they need is proper sanitation. Many of the host families don't have sufficient toilets. They are using makeshift toilets,' said Robert Ssebunya, URCS chairman during a press briefing to launch the appeal at the humanitarian's agency head office in Rubaga Thursday.

"We need to provide these people with sanitation kits, hygiene kits, latrine slabs, safe clean water, and as well sensitize them to prevent any disease outbreaks, like diarrhea and dysentery,' he added.
