Goldstar Insurance Company, one of the Ruparelia group of companies, on Tuesday witnessed the donation of 25 wheel chairs to Katalemwa rehabilitation centre.
The team headed by Paul Kavuma the deputy-managing director extended their helping hand to the Katalemwa Cheshire home as they marked 20 years in insurance business.
The team was welcomed by the executive director Katalemwa rehabilitation centre Ms Samalie Matovu who led them in the touring of the facility from the early learning centre, physiotherapy section and workshop where they make devices for persons with disabilities like wheel chairs, orthopaedic shoes and crutches among others.
The team expressed satisfaction for the good work that is being done at the rehabilitation centre especially for children.
Samalie explained that Katalemwa was set up in 1970 to provide family home environment for the people with incurable, sick and physical disabilities and for years now it has since changed to accommodate even the adult.
However, she mentioned about the challenges the facility is facing like children and parents not affording money for surgery, wheel chairs because they are expensive and that is why they want more donors like Goldstar insurance to help.
Kavuma the deputy-managing director Gold star insurance told media that they chose Katalemwa because this is the part of their social responsibility.
“Today we gave out 25 wheel chairs but I promise that we will continue donating to Katalemwa.”
