MTN Uganda and Salam TV through their joint Ramadhan campaign on Monday made more donations to the Muslim community around the country.
In two separate ceremonies this afternoon, MTN Uganda and Salam TV donated items to Kasana Health Center IV & Bagalana Masjid Mosque in Luwero District, Central Uganda. The items donated included sugar, rice, prayer mats, Islamic tunic/garbs, cooking oil, wheat flour, bar soap, fruit juice, Qurans and salt.
“Fasting during the holy month is one of the five pillars of Islam, which also include prayer and charity. MTN Uganda takes pleasure in joining Muslims from all over Uganda in carrying out various acts of charity throughout the holy month of Ramadan,” reads part of the statement on behalf of MTN Uganda.
“As a caring corporate company, we find it not only our right but also our responsibility to give back to our local communities and most especially those in need such as the vulnerable, the unfortunate and those who are unwell. We wish the Ugandan Muslim community a peaceful Ramadan season,” it adds.
Throughout Ramadan, MTN Uganda and Salam TV will conduct various activities to engage with Muslims all over the country.
