Uganda Premier League (UPL) side Express FC was joined by their title sponsor Betway Uganda to give back to Kitebi Hospital on Sunday morning.
Kitebi Hospital is one of the health Centre IV that provides healthcare to a large number of people in the Rubaga Division. It is located in Rubaga South surrounded by Mutundwe, Nyanama, Bunnawaya and Wankulukuku.
“Why Hospital? Health is number one priority in sport hence need to support a health institution as its makes core concept for one to be able to play or support a football club,” club CEO Hamza Junju told this website.
“We also want to continue putting our club closer to the community as a way of giving back and hence build a brand and good image to the community that make our fans.”
Betway who injected Sh400M into the Wankulukuku based side in November last year, also sponsors Kobs (Rugby) and Power (Basketball) among others.
The leading online betting company has carried out various CSR activities in the country – Last year, Betway commemorated World Malaria day in Kagugube zone (Makerere) where they cleaned the whole area, donated maternity kits to Naguru hospital on Women’s day (2018) among others.
“As Betway, we love giving back to communities and we do this monthly,” noted Betway’s country manager Adelle Agaba Nyaruhuma. “Choosing to clean up Kitebi hospital is to support the community where our sponsored team Express FC comes from and having a healthy community is what keeps the Club on top.”
“We are happy that we did this and we hope the hospital keep up the practice to ensure a good working environment.”
The club confirmed that the clean up equipment and supplies will be left behind for future use.
