In June this year, Ruparelia Group of Companies entered a partnership with Nation Media’s NTV Uganda to raise money for improving hygiene in Kamwokya slums.
According to Rajiv Ruparelia, the director of the Ruparelia Group of Companies, this partnership will see them build pit latrines for the locals.
The pit latrines will be built using proceeds from the upcoming 27th Royal Ascot Goat Races at Speke Resort Munyonyo in Kampala.
Speaking to press at about the biggest event in Kampala city’s social calendar, Rajiv said diseases like cholera, which is a result of poor hygiene, always break out in slum areas like Kamwokya.
He says the slum residents are too poor to afford proper treatment and end up dying hence need to prevent such diseases.
The goat races, held at the Speke Resort on the shores of Lake Victoria, have been an annual Kampala tradition since 1993.
The Royal Ascot Goat Races is arguably the biggest event on the Ugandan social calendar.
