A 10-year-old boy Ismail lives in Mulimira zone(Nakawa West) Kampala district and has cancer. The lockdown caused by Covid-19 pandemic left his mother (a teacher) jobless and the situation got worse for them. Since they couldn’t afford rent anymore, they began to stay in a classroom at the school where the mother was teaching.
The Mulimira residents that are also struggling in this trying period joined together and mobilised some resources to help this suffering family. The leader of Nakawa spearheaded by Nakawa west Member of parliament (Mp) Hon Joel Senyonyi joined the residents to help this family.
“They now have a place to stay, can have some decent meals, and Ismail is going to hospital. I salute Mulimira residents for this spirit of Ubuntu”. Senyonyi thanked the residents.
