Member of parliament and singer, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine on Sunday helped out in feeding over 200 needy families that inhabit the famous Kosovo slum in Lungujja, Kampala.
The drive, fronted by gospel musician Levixone and his lifetime friend, Nsabaanye Emma through charity organisation, 92hands, serves the vulnerable through education, sponsorship, feeding, music festivals and medical care.
Bobi Wine took to social media to express his gratitude towards 92hands for making a difference through the outreaches.
“It felt so good to bring love and hope in the ghetto especially this Christmas season. We thank God for the opportunity we have to make a difference,” he said.
“We can’t be any happier knowing that these families will be able to celebrate the birth of our lord Jesus Christ with full bellies,” The organisation, with over 40 youthful volunteers remarked Saturday as they packed and prepared Meals for families in Kosovo.
Levixone, who arrived recently from his tip across Ireland, UK was shocked to raise over $615 shortly after launching a GoFundMe campaign towards the cause.
“I feed not because I have much but because its my passion and desire to make every one happy and be a reason as to why one has the hope to believe in a better Christmas every year. It doesn’t make sense if am happy and yet there is someone hurting. Its my responsibility to put a smile on every hungry soul this Christmas and make a difference in their lives. That’s my wish this festival season,” 92 Hands volunteer, Rhoda Ella shared.
The organisation reports that 2 in 6 families in Kosovo go without a meal on Christmas.
“Big things start with unreasonable small acts, here is why we started feeding Kosovo four (4) years ago to bring Christmas to families,” Levixone says.
