The managing director of Mukwano Group of Companies, Mr Alykhan Karmali (2nd R), hands cooking oil to the chairman of Afri-Aid, Pastor Robert Kayanja (R), at the company offices in Kampala on Tuesday.
Pastor Robert Kayanja, the chairman of the aid organisation, challenged members of the business community to contribute to the plight of war victims in the world's youngest nation.
said Ugandans have an obligation to support the war-ravaged nation since they are our neighbours with whom we have economic ties.
"South Sudan is like a young baby that has been left to cross a busy road by itself.
The people there, having nothing to eat, are eating leaves, and that's why we will not stop at supporting them but also other nations that will experience similar challenges," Pastor Kayanja
lauded Mukwano industries for partnering with them and urged other well-wishers to emulate them.
"These people do not even expect to harvest any food because their crops have been destroyed by floods," he
Afri-Aid was started by Pastor Robert Kayanja and Gen Salim Saleh, among other businessmen, to help people in vulnerable situations like those in South Sudan.
