The money was raised from contributions of the Board, Management and Staff.

The donation was handed over to the Minister for General Duties Hon. Mary Karooro Okurut, by URSB Board Chairman Ambassador Francis Butagira together with the Registrar General Bemanya Twebaze in Kampala today.

URSB’s contribution, follows that of several public and private entities and individuals who have made both cash and non-cash donations to government for the COVID-19 fight.

Speaking at the handover of the money, Ambassador Francis Butagira said it was necessary to lend a helping hand in these trying times as a way of reaching out to especially those most affected by the pandemic, some of whom include URSB clients

We stand with all Ugandans in these difficult moments. We empathize with everyone affected by the coronavirus pandemic. URSB will continue supporting the Government to fight this virus until we finally go back to our normal lives,” Amb.Butagira said.

The Hon.Minister for General Duties thanked URSB for the gesture and called upon whoever has something to donate to reach out to the government just like the bureau had done.
