While handing over the food to the RDC who heads the District COVID-19 Task force, Lugazi Municipal FC Chairman Eng. Abdul Kawuulu Mwanje revealed that the donations have come through the fans and the well-wishers of the club.
‘’Our players mostly survive on allowances and other contributions done mainly when the league is running, but as we all know there are no sports activities taking place worldwide, it’s obvious that they (players) must be doing not well financially, that’s why the fans have come out with a helping hand’’
“We have received this food from Lugazi Municipal FC fans with a request that it goes out to the players of the Team. Buikwe District COVID-19 Task force would like to take this opportunity to thank all the fans of Lugazi Municipal FC for the tremendous support given to their players’’, said the RDC.
Clearance has been given from the district task force to deliver the food to the players’ respective homes. Each Player will receive 5kgs of Rice, 5kgs of Maize Flour and 4kgs of Beans.
