Uganda Cranes and Forest Rangers goalkeeper Mathias Kigonya has joined a bandwagon of players that have ventured into charity foundations.
The gangly custodian has started up a new charity dubbed “Mathias Kigonya Heart to Heart” Foundation that aims at aiding the needy, homeless and vulnerable children in his motherland.
The Heart to Heart foundation founder and Executive Director Kigonya opened up on the main reason behind this new venture.
“I’m delighted that God has put an opportunity before me to establish a charitable foundation, aimed at supporting the needy, homeless, vulnerable & abused children and elderly persons. Mathias Kigonya Heart to Heart Foundation will not have a wider membership but I will majorly work my family members to reach out the needy people I want to support and, by now, it will not be entering any contracts or employ staff,” Kigonya told Kawowo Sports.
The foundation will also engage in donating necessities to the vulnerables, extend counselling services, educational and life skills sessions.
