THE East African Development Bank (EADB) has donated sh5m to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Erute county.
EADBâ€™s director general Godfrey Tumusiime handed over the donation to the area MP, Angiro Gutomoi, at his office in Kampala last week. The funds will be used to buy 2,000 hoes.
Tumusiime said, â€œWithout peace, there is no meaningful activity which can take place.â€
He said the bankâ€™s donation would help the IDPs grow their own food and reduce heavy reliance on food handouts in the camps.
Gutomoi said the donation was timely because it coincided with the planting season.
