Set to open offices in Mbarara
Bryan White left Mbarara as a hero because of what he did on Saturday at Kakyeka Stadium and Mbarara Referral Hospital, we can reveal.
The CEO of Bryan White Foundation, Bryan White real name Bryan Kirumira on Saturday brought Mbarara town to a standstill when he launched his foundation officially at Kakyeka Stadium.
Bryan received a hero’s welcome and left the place as a hero to many because of good heart of sharing with people.
Thousands of people thronged Kakyeeka stadium for the official launch of Bryan White foundation on Saturday and you would think it was one of those many political rallies or a music concert.
Bryan White keeps defying all odds against his haters, doubters and those who predicted that he would be off the scene in six months.
His message on Saturday was clear again as he called on the Youths to stop being used and get involved themselves. He called on them to practice agriculture saying it’s the only way that would help them fight poverty.
“Don’t abandon your vast of lands in the villages to come to towns like Kampala, there are no jobs. Settle on the land and practice farming instead of looming around town with nothing to offer,” Bryan said. “Be independent, start small and you will grow big, stop begging, how long will you beg,” he said.
He promised to open offices for his foundation in Mbarara soon so as to be able to give financial support to different youth projects in the area. He requested people to submit project proposals.
While at Kakyeka, Bryan White Foundation donated items worth over Shs 300m to several schools, elderly, disabled, widows, farmers and many others.
Among the items were Bryan White Foundation bags, books, pens, mattresses, sanitary pads, food stuffs like posho, beans, sugar, rice, soap, liquid soap, jerrycans, planting seeds for farmers, pump sprayers for farmers to mention but a few.
He said this was just the beginning of what his foundation will do for Ugandans.
Before heading to Kakyeka, Bryan White extended support to patients at Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital and through his, foundation he donated several items like mosquito nets, mama kits, soap, basins, sugar plus many others.
Speaking to some of the women in the ward, the activist advised them to utilize family planning options available to them so as to bring forth the right number of children they will be able to cater for.
The Mbarara hospital director Dr. Celestine Barigye thanked Bryan White Foundation for his helping hand and for the good family planning advice he gave to the women.
“We are so happy and blessed have been visited by Bryan White and his foundation, we appreciate his kindness because he is one of a kind,” he said.
Many patients at the hospital wondered whether Bryan White was a Ugandan or not. “We pray that God keeps him alive and rewards him for his gesture, he is such a kind person.
At Kakyeka stadium, he again insisted that Bryan White Foundation activities in the area or in any other part of the country have nothing to do with politics. “We are putting up a way through which the youths will be helped out of poverty,” he said.
He praised and thanked his team for working together to bring up a successful launch.
He said he was taking a one week break before resuming his foundation activities.
In Mbarara, he was accompanied by his foundation singers King Michael, Weasel, Big Eye, Tindatiine, Pallaso, Red Banton and several others as well as upcoming singers in Mbarara and Kampala, Penny Patra, comedian Alex Muhangi, Teacher Mpamire, Madrat and Chico as well as MC Speed of Mbarara.
In total, the activist spent over Shs 1.5bn on Mbarara launch.
