Tycoon Jack Pemba of Pemba Sports Africa yesterday morning donated Shs50m to Uganda Sickle Cell Rescue Foundation. Pemba made the donation at a breakfast meeting at Hotel Africana which was meant to raise money for the sickle cell cause in Uganda.
The Sickle Cell Foundation is headed by Hajji Bulaimu Muwanga Kibirige (BMK) of Hotel Africana. Jack Pemba’s donation comes in handy and he is closely attached to the cause. He has a sickle cell trait himself and two daughters who are sicklers.
At the meeting, board members present included; Mr Erotus Nsubuga, Prof. Ndugwa, Dr. Lawrence Kagwa Sarajoy Bakanansa and Sister Dlorence. We salute Pemba for supporting the cause.
