“Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people.” This is a famous quote by author Roy T. Bennett.
FUFA equally believes that football is not just a game. It can transform society through various aspects.
It us upon this background that a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign is attached to every season of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
For the fifth time, the campaign returns for the 2022/23 season that is at the round of 16.
FUFA Events Manager Leilah Nankya lauched this year’s campaign and it will run under the theme ‘Make them smile again.’
“For the fifth year, we are running this campaign to show that football can make a positive impact on society. For every final of the Stanbic Uganda Cup, we look at donating clothes and other items to the less privileged people in the region where the final is played.” She stated.
“I call upon the general public, sponsors and the corporate world to be part of this cause. We shall have collection centres where clothing items will be received.” Added Nankya.
