Post Bank Uganda has again proved that it does not only help its customers to sustain wealth through its excellent services but also it cares about the social welfare of Ugandans.
Today, the Bank has contributed shs30 million towards this year’s Kabaka Birthday run in order to spearhead the fight against the sickle cell disease.
During the sponsorship event, Post Bank managing Director Steven Mukweri handed over the cheque to Buganda Prime Minister Peter Mayiga at Post Bank Branch in Ndeeba.
Mr. Mukweri extended his gratitude to the King of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi for allowing the Bank to always be part of the great milestone ever since the Kabaka Birthday run series were sparked off way back in 2014.
He ensured the Premier that more than 250 staff and a good number of Post Bank customers have already registered to take part in the run.
“Our customers and staff of more than 250 employees are very pleased and have already registered for the run,” Mukweri stated adding that, ”the run is not only for fun but it creates awareness about the killer diseases like sickle cell,”
He further promised Premier Mayiga that Post Bank will continue working with the Buganda Kingdom to find solutions on such sensitive issues affecting Buganda people and Ugandans at large.
On the other hand, Premier Mayiga applauded Post Bank for its significant role in keeping the Kabaka Birthday run moving and its care towards the low income earners. He said Post Bank is one of the few banks in the country which offer appropriate loans with favourable terms and conditions.
“Right now Buganda Kingdom and Post Bank are companions considering the fact that the bank has been moving with us ever since we launched the first edition of the Kabaka Birthday run and I would like to ensure you, Post Bank was our first sponsor in this cause,” Mayiga asserted.
On the same event, Post Bank Ndeeba Branch Manager, Margret Namazzi said this is a clear identification that the bank does not only care about making profits like other financial institutions but it also cares about the health of its customers.
This year’s marathon is marking the 62nd birthday of Buganda king Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II. And the exciting annual showpiece will take centre stage this weekend on Sunday 9, April.
