Yesterday, a group of students’ leaders at the Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU) under their foundation called Bugwere Support Foundation (BSFU) Uganda donated several items to the needy in Bundega Village in Sironko District.
Hafsa Hussein Ahmed, the foundation chairperson who doubles as the Deputy Prime Minister in Islamic University Students Union (IUSU) Government 2021-2022 at IUIU Main Campus in Mbale City told The Lens Media that salt, sugar and other items were offered to about 15 families.
“We have donated assorted items such as sugar, soap, salt and tea leaves to the needy people in Bundege Village in Sironko District. We donated the items to 15 families in the presence of the LC1 of the village,” Ahmed told The Lens Media.
Hafsa Hussein Ahmed hinted that the main objective of the drive was to elevate and help the unprivileged people in the area.
“We decided to donate to Bundege Village because it’s one of areas we identified that had high number of vulnerable elders who can’t have the energy to reach spacial needs for themselves and most of them are single parents. Most of them are in their late 50s so they can’t work for themselves,” she said.
The foundation was established in 2020. Since its inception, the students through the foundation have made several donations in many areas of the Eastern Uganda.
