Mastercard Foundation has announced a USD 1 Million (UGX 3.7 Billion) contribution towards the restoration of the Ivory Tower.
This has been shared in the Foundation’s letter of sympathy to the Vice Chancellor by the President and CEO of Mastercard Foundation, Dr. Reeta Roy.
“I am overwhelmed by the great show of solidarity by the Mastercard Foundation in rebuilding our damaged iconic and historic administration building through a pledge of 1 Million US Dollars,” said VC Prof Barnabas Nawangwe.
Makerere is immensely grateful for this generous contribution, he noted.
The first donation towards the restoration of the iconic administration building came from Prof. Busingye Kabumba of Makerere Law School in the sum of UGX 1 million.
He sent his donation on Sunday morning immediately after fire had gutted the building.
Dr. Busingye Kakumba is a Lecturer at School of Law.
