CSR - Kabaka Birthday Run
On 3rd July, 2022, the company staff participated in the Kabaka Birthday Run, an annual event that forms part of the celebrations to mark the birthday of the King of Buganda, His Majesty Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II. For the last three years, the run’s theme has been “Men for Good Health and Ending AIDS by 2030.” The race saw an estimated 80, 000 participants from Uganda and beyond take part.
The run is part of the King's five-year fundraising campaign to increase the uptake of HIV testing and treatment services, with a particular focus on men and boys. It has yielded remarkable results in the Buganda region, with new HIV infections down more than in any other region of Uganda over the last few years.
The campaign is aimed towards the fight against HIV/AIDS and intended to raise awareness about testing, treatment and ultimately protection against infection and the importance of regular health check-ups.
