As a way of fighting against the spread of Covid-19 in Uganda and also a response to President’s call, we have seen many corporate companies, organizations and also some individual sending in their contributions to the Ministry Of Health and the Covid-19 Tasks Force.

“We are really grateful for the work that the Ministry has done when it comes to health care and we have no doubt that you have done your very best in this fight so far. Airtel being a responsible corporate citizen we want to ensure that we are able to stand with the country and support you, hence, our contributions of 1.25 Billion Uganda Shillings”.

Meanwhile, PS Dr. Diana Atwine in her words also appluads Airtel by saying that Airtel right from the time the outbreak began, they have been with them. They have been supporting the policies and messages, helping disseminate the right information to the people, opened special channels for donations, and so much more that they are grateful for the support.
