Uganda Cranes’ Henry Kalungi extended his charity work to Makerere Kivulu slums on Monday as he donated food and other supplies to families that can barely afford a living.
Kalungi was adding onto his works from Saturday at Buganda Road where he dined with the underprivileged children in a bid to help them realize their talent.
Under his Henry Kalungi Foundation, the Charlotte Independence footballer gave out food supplies like cooking oil, rice, sugar, soap, salt, corn flour, beans and other foodstuffs.
“We supplied them with Christmas as the kids told us they didn’t have anything at home. We want the families to be able to enjoy and joyous and happy Christmas,” Kalungi told Kawowo Sports.
“So we provided for over 70 families. For those elderly ones that couldn’t walk, we took it right at their houses and wished them a merry Christmas.”
Today we delivered Christmas to families in Makerere Kivulu slums.We want to thank all our our family for working tirelessly to make this happen.Not forgetting all our friends that make this possible.God bless you all.@Discoveries_SC @RichPosipanko @USL @umbro @WinthropSoccer pic.twitter.com/nTi6Gdr4n4

The former Winthrop defender did exactly the same last year though it was in Katanga slum – a settlement located in the valley between Mulago Hospital and Makerere University.
He continued: “It was sad to see kids tell Me that they didn’t have anything to eat or to use. The conditions of living are not good hopefully our foundation can work more to bring joy to these families.”
The US-based footballer who is currently in the off-season at his club and was named Charlotte Independence defender of the year after a fruitful season last term, will follow with another trip to Bulemezi.
“Tomorrow we are going to the village of bulemezi to try and take them Christmas too.”
