Kampala Associated Advocates (KAA), a top law firm in Uganda has contributed Shs 30M to the COVID-19 Relief Taskforce, we have been reliably informed.
The law firm, earlier today, handed over a cheque of 30M to Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Ruhakana Rugunda, the Chairperson of the COVID-19 taskforce. The cheque was handed over by the firm’s Managing Partner Counsel Joseph Matsiko.
“We join other private sector players in contributing to the National Response Fund to Covid-19. We thank the government officials & the Ugandan health workers who are working tirelessly to flatten the curve.” The law firm said in a statement.
