Speaking at the event today, Katikiro of Buganda Owek Peter Mayiga said that the campaign against HIV requires a joint effort to bring about behavioral change and sharing key information. He applauded dfcu Bank for its commitment to making positive and lasting changes through partnering with Buganda Kingdom to enlighten and empower communities to live fuller, healthier lives.
Speaking at the event, Jude Kansiime, dfcu Bank’s Marketing Manager reiterated the Bank’s commitment to supporting the kingdom in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the country, by calling for individuals to take greater responsibility for their well-being and that of their families.
“It is a fact that Uganda’s success in fighting the HIV/AIDS scourge is attributed to the collaborations that have been formed between the Government, grassroot communities, Non-Profit Organizations, and other reputable institutions. It is therefore dfcu Bank’s great honor to add our contribution to this fight,” he noted.
