As the country continues to grapple with the Covid-19 crisis, The Ruparelia Group through its charity arm Ruparelia Foundation has as usual launched its annual tradition of celebrating Christmas with the less disadvantaged.
The Group has gifted over 5000 Christmas hampers to various orphanages across the region including notably the Eseza Foundation, Islamic Foundation and Angel Center among others.
The goodies were handed over by Jerely Fernandez on behalf of Ruparelia Foundation.
The group thanked all sponsors who have endeavoured to donate towards the Christmas Gift drive that happened on Tuesday 15th December.
“The children at Rwenzori Mumtazi orphanage center and school says thank you to our donors,” the foundation said in a Facebook post after giving out the goodies to the underprivileged.
The Ruparelia Foundation was founded in 2012 by Dr. Sudhir & Mrs Jyotsna Ruparelia and runs its programmes under the theme: “Enriching Lives Together”.
For the past seven years the Foundation has worked together with several stakeholders to champion positive change in different communities across the country to improve livelihoods in Uganda.
To date, more than 600 charitable causes have been funded by the charity.
