In her remarks, Hon Okurut thanked TopBet for the generous donation noting that if Uganda is to defeat Covid 19, it needs combined effort of everyone.
Since March when Uganda confirmed its first case of Covid 19, the country has been under a lockdown as a measure to prevent the spread of the disease.
Many vulnerable Ugandans have lost their sources of income and hence are unable to provide daily meals for themselves.
Currently Uganda has 55 confirmed cases of Covid 19, 28 patients have already recovered and been set home.
