In joining the support for the Gulu Corona-Virus district Taskforce, Gulu University on Thursday evening joined other partners by donating 750kg of Posho worth Shs1.5m.
The food will later be given to the vulnerable persons in this lockdown period.
Professor Openjuru George Ladaah, the University vice chancellor who was led the University staff, while handing over the donation on Thursday afternoon, said that the pandemic has created problems for the community
The University thought of standing with the Taskforce as directed by the president that all donations should be channelled through the various district Taskforces for up-country people.
“Well aware that we have informed government that we have a multi-functional bioscience Laboratory that can support in the CONVID19 testing and case management, we have also come to provide this posho as a sign of solidarity of standing with our people and county at large” Openjuru commented.
Major Santos Okot Lapolo, the Gulu Resident District Commissioner, who received the gift from the University team said the district taskforce will also compile all the lists of the donors and send to the national taskforce for recognition before the president so that the upcountry donors also benefits from his national recognition.
