Kampala: As part of their corporate social responsibility, Barclays Bank Uganda staff on Friday visited ‘Bless a Child Foundation’ in Makerere Kikoni, where they donated over Shs43,076,853M  to pediatric patients.

The money was collected during a fundraising dinner last year. The bank, which is part of the Absa family, has over the years raised funds to support Bless a Child Foundation, a non-governmental organization that provides care and support services to children suffering from cancer. Michael Segwaya, Chief Finance Officer Barclays Bank Uganda, handed over the cheque to Brian Walusimbi, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bless A Child Foundation. The Barclays Bank team toured the Children’s home and interacted with some of the patients and their caretakers before handing over the cheque. “We are proud to have supported Bless a Child Foundation over the years. We have made this donation to ensure that paediatric patients under medical care continue to live normal lives and receive educational and moral support while undergoing treatment,” Segwaya said, before applauding Walusimbi for the great initiative. ( While receiving the donation, Walusimbi

expressed his excitement at the gesture and commended the support received from the Bank’s staff.  “Since Bless a Child Foundation launched an annual fundraising drive, Barclays Bank Uganda has held our hand and we are grateful for the continuous support,” Walusimbi said. He added that “Partnering with Barclays Bank Uganda gives a chance to these young children to have a better life, and enjoy opportunities that are vital for their future.” an accessible web community
