Old Kampala is the latest community to benefit from Airtel Uganda’s extensive Corporate Social Responsibility campaign of giving to its subscribers throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan.
The campaign that is aimed at shedding light on the true Ramadan spirit and celebrating this special time of the year with the local communities saw Airtel Uganda officials camp at Gadaffi mosque in Old Kampala and handover foodstuffs to assist community members in preparing their Iftar meals.
Commenting during the handover, Airtel Uganda PRO Ms. Faith Bugonzi said Airtel Uganda is proud to support its subscribers during this Holy Month.
“Old Kampala is the third community in Kampala that we are visiting to distribute foodstuffs. Over the past two weeks, we have visited Wandegeya and Kibuli communities and have also handed the residents foodstuffs for Ramadan. We intend to continue this initiative until the month ends,” she commented.
Speaking during the handover, Haji Nsereko Mutumba, the spokesperson of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council thanked Airtel Uganda for the noble gesture.
“During the Holy Month of Ramadan, Muslims are encouraged to share with one another and help the less advantaged community members. I am glad to see companies like Airtel Uganda embracing such values of giving back to their customers and to the muslim community at large,” he commented.
