On Thursday 18th June 2015, the MTN Dealers Forum donated four million shillings towards the construction of a new surgical ward at St. Francis Naggalama Hospital in Mukono District.
The donation came the same month MTN Uganda marked the 21 Days of Y’ello Care, a CSR activity in which MTN Staff made voluntary contributions towards the improvement of education at various schools and education institutions around the country.
As such, it was befitting that the MTN dealers, who form the foundation of MTN network’s Sales and Distribution, also took part in this initiative.
The cheque was handed over by Andrew Ntegeka of C&A Telecom, Esther A. Owor of Otada Telecom, Edward Muhumuza of Dembelyo Telecom, all representing the Executive Committee of the Dealer forum; and MTN teams represented by Andrew Rugamba, Isaiah Semamuli and many others.
Receiving the contribution was the team from St Francis Nagalama let by Sr. Jane Frances.
“We’re delighted to receive this contribution from MTN Dealers Forum. We are sincerely grateful for your support towards the construction of a new Surgical Ward, and we encourage all our stakeholders to continue to support MTN Uganda,” said Sr. Jane Frances, speaking at the colourful event held at the hospital premises before the delegation were taken to a tour around the hospital.
