Kampala, Mulwana Road, Industrial area: Giving back to community is part of Uganda Baati, and the Safal Group culture. Over the years Uganda Baati Limited (UBL) has developed a systematic and structured approach to give back to communities through sustainable CSR interventions. Today, UBL joined the rest of the world to put emphasis on the mission to end HIV as a public health threat by 2030.
In partnership with Uganda AIDS Commission, the UBL staff led by the Business Head, Mr. George Arodi, joined hands to commemorate the International Candle Light Day by symbolically lighting candles and launched a two-week long medical camp through its Chandaria Medical Clinic that will offer free medical services to the public, that include HIV testing and counselling, Malaria testing, blood sugar/blood pressure testing, BMI (all health vital checks) and distribution of condoms.
Mr. George Arodi implored the staff of the company to offer care and be the ambassador in passing the message to end the stigma and discrimination on those living with HIV AIDS. He emphasized on the need for enhanced HIV testing and medication for those already affected. With discipline on taking the prescribed medication and proper dieting, those with HIV AIDS are assured of living a normal life, he said.
