There will also be goat roasting and shoe polishing to also raise more money.

Ugandan Comedian, Patrick Salvador Idringi will be the chief shoe shiner of the day.

All proceeds will go towards Raymond’s surgery in India. Each car will be washed at Shs 50,000.

Raymond, a second year DBA Student at MUBS, was attacked by unknown thugs as he returned from his internship.

He was rescued by good Samaritans who rushed him to the Spine Unit at Mulago Hospital where doctors found that the attack had damaged his spine leading to paralysis of the lower body.

Despite undergoing a major surgery, Raymond has only been able to regain use of his upper body. He is currently unable to write, feed, and ease himself.

He urinates using a catheter. He has as a result been out of school for over a year and stays at home in Kasokoso, Wakiso District.

The specialists from India assessed him and have reassured the family that a second surgery will enable his lower body to recover and the paralysis will be gone.

Support

A retired Sergeant in the UPDF, Mr Paddy Nabimanya launched a public appeal on August 29, 2016 to raise USD13,400 (Shs 46m) to save his only son – Raymond.

Nabimanya confirmed this September that the Public has helped raise Shs 27m so far in cash donations, honoured pledges, and mobile money and bank account collections.

Raymond’s sister, Loy Kirabo said she is still saddened by the events of June 12, 2015 when unknown people attacked, injured, and robbed her only brother  while he was returning from internship.

“I call upon individuals and organizations to turn up for this charity event to give my brother a second chance in life,” Kirabo adds.

Nabimanya has made another public appeal to help him raise the remaining Shs 19m.

Raymond’s former classmate, Joseph Opark said:”I have been humbled by overwhelming support from Ugandans on this noble cause #saveOurRaymond. Some people did skip lunch and sent their contributions.”
