MTN Gives Shs 10m To Support All Saints Community Initiatives

sildenafil geneva;”>MTN Uganda CEO Mazen Mroué, sale said MTN is inspired by the noble community activities the church is involved in, noting that they resonate with the company’s values on Corporate Social Responsibility


This was during a courtesy call on the New Archbishop of the Church of Uganda on Wednesday.


“We are motivated by what All Saints Cathedral stands for because it’s in line with what our MTN foundation believes in,” he said.


“There are many people out there that need a compassionate hand. At MTN, we are not involved in such activities directly, but we are very glad to lend a helping hand to such institutions that drive such noble causes,” added Mazen Mroué.


All Saints Cathedral is one of the oldest churches in Uganda, and is involved in community activities such as Compassion and Hospitality for street kids, orphans and the destitute, counseling and health/healing (HIV/AIDS initiatives), education, Stewardship, Leadership development and a host of other youth programs.


During the same visit, MTN Uganda contributed Shs10m towards the construction of the new cathedral building, which is intended to create more room for the barging Christian community that throng the church all week.


The new building will also create more capacity for it to do more community activities.


The current church was build many years ago with a plan to accommodate 600 people, but this has become very small. The new building is planned to take up to 4500 people.


Mazen called upon every individual and institution to make a contribution towards such causes, whether financially or physically.


“AT MTN, we know the importance of giving back to the communities in which we operate. By this contribution, we hope that we have re-ignited the drive for more people to come and be a part of this support great initiative,” he said.


The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali said that MTN’s support is very timely as the activities of the church are financially demanding and yet there is always need for more.


“The church depends on contributions of its members as well as well-intentioned companies like MTN Uganda. We would like to encourage more people to borrow a leaf from MTN and come in to support the church,” he said.


Mazen said MTN Uganda Foundation partners with both public and non-profit credible organizations to execute sustainable projects in each of the chosen focus areas.


He noted that it is committed to ensuring that the selection and approval of its projects are conducted in a manner that is transparent, systematic, efficient, and effective while promoting its mission.
