Singer Angella Katatumba’s NGO, AKDF has won the Charity of the year award in the South African based Starqt Awards
The charity organization, Angella Katatumba Development Foundation (AKDF), started off the year in high gear on the 15th of January 2016, with Angella personally donating 10,000,000 UGX to Mulago National Referral Hospital. The money was used to buy a Phototherapy machine and a Syringe Pump. These machines are saving the lives of 60 premature babies every week at Mulago Hospital.
Three weeks after her donation in February 2016, the UN officially recognized AKDF with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon inviting Angella to attend the first ever UN World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul Turkey.

Then in May 2016, Angella was appointed to be the face of Uganda Cancer Insititute. On July 1st 2016 Angella held a successful VIP Mulago Yaffe concert at the Kampala Serena Hotel, where she then donated 15,000,000 UGX of the concert proceeds to the Uganda Cancer Institute to continue the fight against cancer.
