CASE STUDY: Emmanuel Zambo PDT-U COVID-19 Response Project – Uganda

In June 2020, Transaid launched a COVID-19 response programme to support heavy goods vehicle (HGV) drivers in Uganda, supported by the Employment and Skills for Development in Africa (E4D) Programme. Working with local partners, Transaid is helping to roll out driver-specific safety advice and provide handwashing facilities, cab sanitisation materials, and personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep drivers safe, reduce transmission rates and build community confidence in the safety of the logistics sector.

This case study tells the story of Emmanuel Zambo, a Congolese driver who has been driving long distance for over seven years. COVID-19 has brought many challenges to his job, as he explains.
