Mzee Charles Okolong has used his good health to serve others. A Rotarian in Bweyogerere-Nambole club, Okolong needs a kidney transplant to get back on his feet again.
Okolong who chaired Rotary Foundation which served the community locally and across the borders, had reached out to the less privileged in Uganda, Ethiopia, Sudan, Rwanda and Kenya for most of his life.
Unfortunately, he is battling a life threatening illness which has cut short his service to others. He is now looking at you, reading this, to support him overcome this burden.
Charles’ kidney was found damaged and a kidney transplant to be done in India is what he needs to get him well again.
Well wishers have started mobilizing events to raise some money to support the man who was always there for the needy.
On 6th August 2016, Rotary Club of Bweyogerere -Nambole has organized a charity Car wash at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds to raise money to support their own to facilitate his treatment.
“The Rotary purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders together to provide humanitarian services,” says Sam Semakula, one of the youthful enthusiasts who want to see the noble man running his errands again.
“If he has extended a hand to us and them, why not give a hand to him?” Semakula asks.
