Kamwokya based Record Television Network has joined Pan-African pyramid, HALEA-Uganda, Britania and office of the prime minister in the collection of relief aide for Rwamwanja refugees which will be delivered this X-mas on 22nd Dec 2018.
The project is organized by The Pan-African Pyramid in conjunction with the office of the prime minister (department of disaster and refugees), dubbed ‘X-Mas with the Refugees’. It’s done every X-mas season to different refugee camps with an aims of sharing with the refugees in the happy moments that x-mas season comes with to families.
“We collect relief aide such as clothes, shoes,food, house hold items, medicare, mattresses etc for refugees to also enjoy Christmas festive seasons which we deliver before X-Mas. We also spend a day with the refugees fetching for them water, playing games with them as a way of showing them that we’re one and the same as Pan-Africanists, only divided by artificial geographical boundaries,” PAP’s founding Speaker/Chairman Andrew Irumba told this reporter on phone on Monday when asked for a comment.
PAP’s previous visits to refugee camps include Kiryandongo and Bidi Bidi (Yumbe District) refugee settlement camps in 2016 and 2017 respectively. This year they intend to visit Rwamwanja refugee settlement camp in Kamwenge District.
Now Record TV has offered free airtime in advertising the project as away of celebrating the season and giving back to the community.
According to the MoU signed by Andrew Irumba and the record TV MD Mr.Motsoeneng Ezekiel, the station has also pledged to cover the entire collection and distribution exercise.
“Our crew will also move with you to the camps on 22 Dec and cover the entire event,” confirmed Mr.Ezekiel at the signing ceremony at their offices at Kamwokya.
Other partners include Britania Allied, Halea-U among others. You too can join the cause by contacting PAP on 0776-933933 or at their offices on Gaddafi road.
The Pan-African Pyramid is an intellectual non-partisan discussion forum built on the Pillars of PAN-AFRICANISM, PATRIOTISM and NATIONALISM whose Ideal/pre-occupation is to REVIVE intellectual discourse among the youths with a bias of re-constructing our lost Pan-Africanism, patriotism and Nationalism Values and spirit.
Topics are deliberately conceptualized to address deficiencies by filling in the perceived gaps in the levels of awareness to generate knowledge and solutions to African problems, first by Africans themselves. They do this without fear or favour.
The show is broadcast live at Fairway Hotel & Spa in Kampala every Friday 5-9pm and a recorded version of the same telecast on TV.
The Pan-African pyramid is the ONLY ‘FREE YOUR MIND’ forum which brings together debaters of all races to discuss positive issues that are germane to the total economic and social liberation of Africa and African people.
What Is Pan-Africanism?
Pan-Africanism is an ideology and movement that encourages the solidarity of Africans worldwide. It’s based on the belief that unity is vital to economic, social, and political progress and aims to “unify and uplift” people of African descent. The ideology asserts that the fate of all African peoples and countries are intertwined. At its core Pan-Africanism is “a belief that African peoples, both on the continent and in the diaspora, share not merely a common history, but a common destiny”
To articulate the concerted efforts geared towards promoting the true African Awaking amongst the BLACK people throughout Africa and in the Diaspora, and galvanize inventions and innovations of the African people.
To REVIVE intellectual discourse among the youths with a bias of re-constructing our lost Pan-Africanism, patriotism and Nationalism Values and spirit.
