The Saudi Arabia embassy in Uganda has distributed 300 gift coupons to patients and health workers at Jinja Regional Referral Hospital and Nalufenya Children's hospital ahead of Eid-el-Aduha celebrations on Sunday this weekend.

 

The coupons, which will enable the health workers and patients to access food items from Al-Seif mosque on Eid day, were handed to the beneficiaries by Bander Bin Mohammed AL-Faifi, the in Charge of Affairs at the Saudi Embassy. 

Bander noted that due the worries surrounding patients and their families, they are unable to slaughter animals on their own, saying it is the responsibility of Muslims to feast with them.

He said the embassy is committed towards supporting Uganda's health sector. 

"I am not a politician to promise heaven on earth, but the Saudi Arabia embassy is committed towards supporting Uganda's health sector, and i will liaise with my superiors to extend some support to hospitals in Jinja district," he said.
