Ruparelia Foundation in conjunction with Cedric Babu aspiring MP for Kampala Central has given out care package from Ruparelia Foundation to the needy groups during the Coronavirus outbreak.
The parishes that benefited are; Kamwokya, Mengo, Kagugube, Bukesa, Nakivubo, Shauriyako, IndustrialArea, Kisenyi and Old Kampala.
The purpose of the tour was not only to show love and support these trying times of Coronavirus, but to also sanitize the local community on what precautions and measures they can do to protect not only themselves and their families, but also the communities in which they live. The foundation is giving out 5,500 care packages to the needy.
Fighting CoronaTogether, Babu says â€œWe are going through a difficult period right now. This is the time for us to show collective responsibility. We have to unite and pull together as communities and follow the guidelines as set by Ministry of Health if we are to get though the crisis.â€
Jyotsna Ruparelia co-founder of Ruparelia Foundation says coronavirus does not discriminate against social class, religion or ethnicity. It simply kills. This is the time when we all must know â€“ right from kindergarten going school children right up to adults and grandparents.
There is also the need to thank His Excellency, President Yoweri Museveni for taking swift and decisive measures to contain the virus, the minister of health, Jane Aceng, Dr.â€™s, nurses, public health experts and the various security organs for their tireless efforts in trying to keep Uganda safe.
As Ruparelia Foundation basing on our catchphrase â€œEnriching Lives Togetherâ€, for the past seven years the Foundation has worked together with several people championing positive change in different communities across the country to achieve our goal of having improved livelihoods in society.
The foundation works to improve a solution directly with strategic partners from the business, government and non-profit sector. Our focus areas include health care, education, sports, wildlife and environment conservation, disaster relief, startup and general welfare.
