Uganda Cranes defender Henry Kalungi and wife Jacqueline Kalungi washed the feet of underprivileged children on Sunday before the Henry Kalungi Foundation extended donations.
Kalungi, who aims at changing lives and giving back to community, marked his fourth year hosting the kids to lunch before donating sports gear including football boots, jerseys, gloves, socks and balls among others. The day saw kids taken through football and netball drills at Buganda Road Playgrounds.
They were rewarded with gear, candy for the kids, face painting, food and drinks before they got served with cake to close out the party. Kalungi lauded everyone’s contribution towards the foundation’s party that was a success.
“We do this every year and we are looking forward to continue with this because most of the kids are not fortunate,” he said.
Jacqueline said that being able to provide some support and hope is an emotional feeling to her.
The Henry Kalungi Foundation continued with charity works extending corn-flower, salt, sugar and soap among other items to families in the slums. They will then head to Bulemeezi where they will hold a women’s conference to enlighten them on health and well-being.
