Mulago Children Ward Receives Gift Hampers

The giving hand of Ruparelia Foundation through the Happiness Hampers Initiative today touched the lives of 240 children at Mulago children ward when Naiya Ruparelia, a trustee of the foundation, visited and delivered an assortment of gift hampers.

Naiya said the visit to the pediatric unit at Mulago Hospital in Kampala is part of the core principles of Ruparelia Foundation. “This is our way of bringing a smile to the faces of the children who are going through a tough time with their health,” she said.

“We admire their strength and hope that they get well soon. We will do this quarterly but we hope to eventually have it become a monthly activity with sponsorships from more people,” Naiya added.

These Hampers have been prepared with the utmost care using donated goods from the Ruparelia Foundation and our partners like Lato Milk, Shreeji Stationers and Kampala Siti Industries Limited who donated products ranging from milk, drawing books, colouring pencils and toilet paper. 

Ruparelia Foundation has for the past eight years worked together with several people championing positive change in different communities across Uganda.

To achieve its goal of having improved livelihoods in society, the Foundation works to improve a solution directly or with strategic partners from the business, government and non-profit sector.
