The Mukono district COVID-19 task force has received donations from Abacus parental drugs company.
The Resident District Commissioner (RDC) of Mukono Fred Bamwine, said among the relief donated by Abacus includes; 2000kgs of maize flour, 1000kgs of beans, 3000 pairs of gloves and 2000 pairs of face masks.
Other items were; sanitizers and a tent to help the office of the RDC while handling people who go there for travel clearance documents.
The donations were delivered by the Abacus managing director Ramesh Babu, the plant head Darren Peters and the chief executive officer Suprakash Mandal.
The district team that received the donation included, the RDC Fred Bamwine, Rtd. AIGP Fred Yiga who is heading the district relief collection team, the district chairman, Andrew Ssenyonga, and Mukono Municipality Mayor George Fred Kagimu, among others.
Babu said they wanted to extend a helping hand to the district, more so to save the lives of health workers who are working without enough protective gear.
Bamwine said that they had withheld the food relief that the district had collected so far because it was still little and that it would cause no impact.
The district Chairperson Ssenyonga said they have so far collected over 12 tonnes of food, adding that the government has promised more.
He said the first donation the government gave to the district was distributed amongst the children's homes.
