MTN Uganda and its partner, Salaam Foundation donated food packages to the Luzira Maximum Prisons inmates yesterday.
The initiative was part of a Ramadhan drive in which the telecom giant has been giving out necessities to vulnerable Muslim communities.
Ismail Hamwada MTN’s Manager, Workforce planning said that it is only proper that people fasting have proper Iftar.
“It is the second time we are donating to Luzira prison during Ramadan. This is MTN’s way of celebrating with the Muslim faithfuls as they observe the holy month of fasting. We recently delivered similar consignment to Uganda police because of the good relationship with the security organs in the country,” Hamwada said.
Sheikh Muhammad Mulajje, the Cheif Imaam at the Luzira prisons mosque thanked MTN for the donation and prayed a blessing over the company for remembering the inmates.
