Covid-19 Crisis: Ruparelia Foundation in together with Gateway Delta and Gateway Metroplex Ltd, have donated 4,000 food kits to the needy as the coronavirus/Covid-19 victims continues to raised
“The country is going through one of its most difficult periods since independence in 1962. We are fighting a disease that cannot be seen. In comparison to some countries in Europe and America and China etc, have recorded Covid-19 related deaths in their thousands, we in Uganda are so far lucky in that not a single death has been recorded.” Said Mr. Rajiv Ruparelia, Managing Director of Ruparelia Group of Companies and a trustee at Ruparelia Foundation immediately after handing over the donation to the taskforce at the office of the prime minister
He adds that “It does not mean that we should relax. If anything, we must continue to heed the directives of President “Museveni” and health minister Dr. Ruth Acheng, if we are to come out of the crisis unscathed”.
However, in this crisis there are many people who have lost their jobs and are currently unable to support themselves.
