Businessman Rulinda donates more food to Entebbe residents during lock-down

By Our Reporter

The Holy Bible in Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 9 and verse 7 is famously quoted about the element of generous giving;

“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves, a cheerful giver.” The Apostle Paul wrote.

In light of the aforementioned, business mogul Fabrice Rulinda is indeed a cheerful giver.

Weeks after handing over fuel worth 500,000/= to the Corona virus Entebbe Task Force, Rulinda has bounced back in style with another generous offer of 7.2 Tons of food.

The donated food was handed over to the Entebbe Sub District Deputy Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Hajji Noor Njuki Mbabali at his office in Entebbe on  Monday, April 27, 2020.

“I am offering food to my brothers and sisters who cannot afford to get what to eat in this period marred by the Corona virus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Many of these people are no longer working and thus not earning. They need to feed and live.” Rulinda noted.

Upon receiving the food, Njuki expressed gratitude by the offer from Rulinda.

“We are humbled by Mr Fabrice Rulinda for the donation of food offered to the Entebbe covid-19 Task Force. This comes after the fuel donation he made to the cars that we use in this operation. Such an act shows the true heart of a generous citizen ready to help others” Njuki noted.
