City Tycoon and Business mogul Hamis Kiggundu popularly known as Ham has today fulfilled a cash pledge of 530 million shillings he donated to the National Covid-19 task force to aid in the country’s fight against the pandemic.
In a bid to raise over 20 Million Covid-19 Vaccine doses, the Youthful and kind-hearted tycoon had last month through his Ham Foundation pledged a cash donation of Shs 530 Million towards the cause.
The cash donation was today received by the Prime of Uganda, Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja at her offices in Kampala.
“I have today received a contribution of UGX 530 Million from Ham Kiggundu as support to the COVID-19 Vaccination Crusade,” PM Nabbanja tweeted to confirm receipt of the cash donation.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank a certain young man, Hamis Kiggundu. He has made a big contribution, I don’t know whether you people are aware, he wants to vaccinate all his staff, his technical people, his servants in his companies. He has also made a contribution of Ten thousand Vaccines so that we can vaccinate Ugandans. He’s fighting Covid,” the Prime Minister said in appreciation of Ham’s contribution towards the fight against Coronavirus.
According to Ham, 5000 doses of these will be reserved for his employees and tenants and the 10,000 doses will be administered to Ugandans for free.
This, not the first time Ham standing with Ugandans. In April 2020, Tycoon Hamis Kiggundu through his Ham Foundation donated Shs100 million in cash towards the food relief distribution program that was targeting vulnerable people affected by the Covid-19 lockdown.
The young tycoon handed over the cash to the then Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda who flagged off distribution of food relief in Kampala.
