Mulago Hospital will be among the beneficiaries of this year’s USPA Road safety Campaign that starts Saturday in Lugazi.
 
The hospital will have its Casualty Ward painted by USPA and the Standard Chartered Bank as a way of giving hope to accident victims.
 
Standard Chartered Bank, Country Chief Risk officer Edward Muwanga confirmed the development at a media briefing where the bank committed sh5m cash to the USPA Road Safety campaign that climaxes on August 24.
 
“This year, on top of the sh5m cash contribution, we shall paint Mulago Hospital causality ward as a way of sharing a message of hope with the victims of accidents,” Muwanga said.
 
USPA road safety campaign is in memory of the fallen sports journalists Peter Simon Ekarot, Francis Batte Junior, Kenneth Matovu and Leo Kabunga who perished in an accident on August 21, 2001, in Lugazi.
 
“We are committed to a continued partnership with Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) to sensitize the public about road safety,” Muwanga added.
 
He also urged Ugandans to respect traffic regulations and other road users to reduce road accidents that are crippling and claiming the lives of many people in the country.
 
USPA president Patrick Kanyomozi thanked the bank for the continued support and promised to continue sensitizing Ugandans on road safety.
 
“We are working on making this activity a nationwide program so that we save the people from all corners of the country,” Kanyomozi said.
 
He added that this year’s activities will involve painting the zebra crossing, cycling competition and visiting victims of accidents in Mulago and Kawolo hospital.
 
The road safety campaign is supported by Standard Chartered Bank, City Tyres, UNRA, NCS, and KCCA FC.
