The hospital administrator Edward Mwanje thanked Betway for the good gesture
As part of their celebration of International Women’s Day held last week and through their association with teams such as Onduparaka, Betway Power Basketball Club and Betway Kobs Rugby Club, Betway has contributed to a charitable cause, donating items worth sh4m to the China Uganda Friendship Hospital, Naguru Hospital’s maternity ward.
Betway country manager Adellah Agaba and Kobs’ scrum half Davis Kiwalabye delivered the items that included blankets, baby milk , pampers, soap and milk to the hospital administrator and Senior Nursing Officer Sarah Muwanguzi and other staff of the hospital on Tuesday.
“The purpose for this donation is to give back to the community that we work in. We are just neighbours with this hospital at Lugogo bypass. So based on the women’s day week, we felt it diligent to give back to the mothers that are very caring and love us so much,” Agaba stated.
“This hospital serves most of our people and clients and our teams, so we felt it right to give back as a way of Social Corporate Responsibility especially to Naguru Hospital, and to the doctors and nurses we do appreciate your work,” Agaba said.
She said through sponsorships to the Pool Association of Uganda, UPDF Boxing Club among others, Betway had keenly become aware of challenges facing communities and where possible they have endeavored to aid those in need.
“Through our research we have found that Naguru Hospital offers services to more than one million residents of Kampala some of whom are needy, so we felt we could ease the burden of short supplies by catering for some of the needs of the maternity and pediatrics units,” Agaba added.
The hospital administrator Edward Mwanje thanked Betway for the good gesture saying the donation has come in handy and will be used to help mothers who come to the hospital without logistics and has come at the right time.
“Being a government hospital, we receive several cases of desperate patients who we give a hand to, so we call on other corporate companies to come up with similar donations, so on behalf of management we are grateful to Betway,” Mwanje said.
