The Uganda High Commission in Kigali in conjunction with the Executive of the Association of Ugandans in Rwanda (AUR) have organized a get-together function to launch the Social welfare fund for all Ugandans in Rwanda.

The fund was motivated by the Covid-19 lockdowns which saw the executive overwhelmed with requests of stranded Ugandans who were in dire need of basics. The executive mobilized support in terms of food, medical care, rent, repatriation of the dead and others

It was this experience that inspired them to come up with a more sustainable way of dealing with social challenges of members. Monthly contributions are made, to date, 90 members have enrolled in the fund.
