Uganda

COVID-19 is still present in Uganda.

Uganda is a country in east-central Africa, with a population of about 46 million. It is home to breathtaking sites such as the Rwenzori Mountains, the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Uganda has a rich culture woven together by a variety of ethnic groups, the largest being defined as Bantu speakers.
The soil there is fertile, which, alongside the elevated plateau terrain and steady climate, combines to make an excellent environment for farming coffee.
