SSENCATA Donates Bananas and Beef to UWEC

Ssese Islands Nature Conservation and Tourism Association(SSENCATA) has responded to Uganda Wildlife Education Centre’s appeal to well-wishers to donate towards animal relief.

The donation includes over 30 bunches of Bananas and over 60Kgs of Beef. These items will be used to feed Chimpanzees, Camels, Lions, Zebras and other wild fellows who subscribe to such a diet.

The impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on Wildlife has been most felt by UWEC owing to the fact that most of her revenues come from gate collections and thus require a huge boost.

SSENCATA is a team of passionate conservationists and we are here to protect animal species, we understand that they are silent and we feel their pain. We have been in touch with our Chairman Brigadier Andrew Lutaaya who is currently stuck in Rwanda since the Lockdown and he has played a key role in mobilising this relief.

On behalf of SSENCATA, Mrs.Ssempagama further informed Entebbe Post that the relief items donated to UWEC are all products of their farms in the Ssese Islands and hope to continue supporting UWEC.

Dr. Musinguzi said he is open to the idea of fostering a formidable relationship with the nature conservationists from the Ssese Islands.

We want to thank SSENCATA for the donation received today, and we want to thank the Government of the Republic of Uganda and all our donors that have stood with us in this trying time. The Nutritionist will use these items to proper use and benefit the animals by the time we open to the public, the animals will be healthy.
