Expectant mothers in Bugiri and Iganga General Hospitals in Eastern Uganda are all smiles following the generous donations of 300 mama kits, over 200 handwashing jerrycans, mattresses, liquid soap, mosquito nets, 300 Baby Junior diapers and soap, among others, by Salam Charity Foundation in partnership with Uthman Group, and Movit Uganda Limited, in a campaign that was dubbed, “Caravan to Eastern Region.”
The items were handed over on the 30th of August 2021 as part of the drive to help fight poverty and transform lives by Salam Charity Foundation. The Uthman Group, led by Dr. Sheikh Twaha Kikambi, was rewarded for completing the project and contributing to humanity.
Salam Charity Foundation has for long been known to have giving back to the community as part and parcel of what they stand for, having been founded in 2014 by Next Media Services’ Salam Television, currently Uganda’s only Islamic TV station. In partnership with the Government of Uganda, Salam TV’s charity arm and credible international and local implementing partners have been seen involved in providing lifesaving meals, strategic education, health, clothing, and livelihood for the needy in different parts of the country.
Over the years, they have supported Mosque-construction projects and given back to various communities during Ramadan, expectant mothers, and donation drives for people in need.
