BUSHENYI – Letshego Holdings Ltd, under its subsidiary Letshego Uganda, continued its elaborate assistance to communities and locations that are bearing the brunt of the effects of the Corona virus. This time round, they contributed UGX5m to the Bushenyi District Task Force headed by the RDC Jolly Tibemanya at a small event at the district headquarters.
“As the world continues to grapple with the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Letshego stands with communities to help limit the spread of the virus and ease the related economic hardships faced by the communities in which we live and work. Our support towards Bushenyi Covid-19 Task Force is one that we hope shall enable district teams across 9 sub counties, 5 town councils and a municipality,” Aijukwe Giles, CEO Letshego retorted.
Letshego’s donation was received by the Bushenyi CAO Mahabba Malik (also a member of the District Task Force) alongside other district staff. He applauded Letshego’s swift response to their pleas as well as the handsome contribution towards their strides. “We are eternally grateful to Letshego for their consideration and timely intervention at this trying time amidst the pandemic. The UGX5m will be allocated towards mobility and sensitization drives within the district so as to safeguard the lives and increase awareness of the virus spread,” Mahabba emphasized.
Aijukwe added, “We are very satisfied with how this close collaboration – a true partnership with the Bushenyi district- has enabled numerous interventions in such a short time, bringing tangible benefits throughout. Our initiatives aim to contribute to the care of the sick as well as to be a sign of appreciation for the exceptional work of those on the front lines: the doctors, nurses and staff who provide essential services, to whom we are so grateful.”
All of our operations are engaging in prevention and awareness campaigns to sensitize the local communities regarding Covid-19. As the COVID-19 crisis evolves, Letshego will continue to align its philanthropic resources based on emerging needs, prioritizing food, medical and emergency assistance.
