Stanbic brings festive cheer to disadvantaged children
Kampala December 13 – Stanbic Bank Uganda has donated USh25 million towards the Kampala Christmas Carols Festival which will bring together disabled and disadvantaged children.
The offer will benefit five orphanages and homes including Missionaries of the Poor in Kisenyi, Teresa Home, and
School for disabled, Butabika Children’s Ward in Luzira and Rahab girls covering a total of 528 children.
“We are very pleased to be spending time with the children and sharing the joy of giving this Christmas season. We hope that our contribution will touch the lives of the most vulnerable in our communities and bring smiles
to the children this festive season,” said Patrick Mweheire, Stanbic Uganda’s Chief Executive.
In addition to the donations to the orphanages, Stanbic also committed to support remodeling the wardrobes in the children’s dormitories at Missionaries of the poor to allow each child keep their property safely.
“There are many poor children but we choose the most disadvantaged. We take in the abandoned children, the destitute, the homeless, the mentally challenged and we try to provide for them. We are grateful to Stanbic for
the donations,” Father Allan Borais the Head at Missionaries of the Poor in Kisenyi said.
Butabika Children’s ward in Luzira also received some physical donations which included rice, a Christmas cake, sugar, soap, books, cooking oil and reading materials for children.
