Uganda: United Way for the Needy
22 January 2007
Kampala, Uganda: We have seen many charities and we are still seeing more but at the moment we can embrace United Way, a non-governmental organisation set to help the needy through funding from people like you and me.
Based in the US, United Way has been in Uganda for the last two years but was yet to be formally launched. Last Friday, saw the opening of the charity with slogans such as "What matters","Together we can make a difference in our community", and "Together we matter."
Nangosia asserted that United Way properly accounts for all funds used. He announced a pledge of four million mosquito nets whose beneficiaries include expectant mothers, children and people with HIV.
Also in the offing is the opening of a clinic in Mbale and construction of an intensive care unit at Sanyu Babies Home. If you wish to join, you can register through: www.unitedwaynca.org.
