MTN Uganda and its partner, Salaam Foundation donated food packages to the Luzira Maximum Prisons inmates yesterday.
The move was part of a Ramadhan drive that has seen the telecom giant give out food to various vulnerable Muslim communities in Kampala and neighboring areas.
Ismail Hamwada MTN’s Manager, Workforce planning said that it is only proper that people
fasting have proper Iftar.
“It is the second time we are donating to Luzira prison during Ramadan. This is MTN’s way of
celebrating with the Muslim faithfuls as they observe the holy month of fasting. We recently
delivered similar consignment to Uganda police because of the good relationship with the
security organs in the country,” Hamwada said.
Sheikh Muhammad Mulajje, the Cheif Imaam at the Luzira prisons mosque thanked MTN for
the donation and prayed a blessing over the company for remembering the inmates.
The team also delivered food packages to vulnerable Muslim communities in Entebbe at
Abayita Ababiri and Lubugumu in Ndejje and will deliver similar packages in Nalumunye on Thursday before doing the same at Mukono Main Mosque and Nakifuma, Friday.
