The Ubuntu Bafumbira United Association, ably represented by three of their own paid a timely visit to St. Francis Hospital, Mutolere where they handed over support to the couple who recently delivered premature triplets.
A previous story published by this website revealed that, the Couple from Chogo Village, Kagunga Parish, Bukimbiri County were living in fear of failing to pay off a medical bill that proved overwhelming.

Ubuntu managed to raise up to 2.4 million Ugandan shillings meant to clear the hospital bills and also managed to contribute a number of assortments including Millet flour, washing soap, clothes for children and baby diapers among others.
The association also gracefully managed to give the couple 800,000 Ugandan shillings, cash meant to support the couple get back on their feet as they look for money through practical skills to ensure the family, not only survives but learns to thrive.
“It is our prayer that with the support we have extended to the family, the children will grow to become useful people to their family, community and the entire country, Bahungirehe said
Bahungirehe said the association will continue to support the family for as long as possible.
The family commended Ubuntu for their kindness and vowed not to neglect their children and ensure to raise them into responsible Ugandans.
