Africa: One of the opposition leaders of Uganda ‘John Baptist Nambeshe’ praised MTN Uganda and Salam Charity’s Ramadan drive for promoting unity among all religions through their Ramadan charity drive.
This all happened after the iftar dinner held last weekend at Wah and Wills Hotel in Mbale.
During the Iftar dinner, where Nambeshe was the chief guest, he thanked MTN and Salam TV that they not only helped the Muslim community but also developed a caring heart for people of all religions as the Muslim fraternity follows the holy month of Ramadan through fasting and sharing.
“I was pleasantly questioned by the fact that MTN Uganda and Salam Charity are not segregating any community or group of people. He thanked on behalf of his society from Bududa. They are so grateful, and your kindness overcame the district Khadi. We pray that you gain success,” Nambeshe said while making his remarks at the Iftar dinner in Mbale.
The dinner followed a handover of donations to the Muslim residents in the Eastern districts of Mbale and Busia.
Prior to this, MTN Uganda and Salam Charity presented alms to the Supreme Kadhi’s office in Ndeeba, where all of Kampala’s county sheikhs and imams were present. The crew also sought out Kawempe’s Khadi district.
According to MTN Uganda’s Ian Mugambe, the donations that are handed over to them mainly targeting the less privileged and refugee society across the country.
The donations include various items such as; rice, baking flour, sugar, salt, cooking oil and soap, among others.
It’s been almost five years that MTN Uganda has worked with Salam Charity to reach out to the Muslim fraternity worldwide during Ramadan.
The theme of the Ramadan this year; is “A giving heart” as a way of promoting friendship as the country recovers from the effects of the nearly two-year-long Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown.
