The Makerere University Business School (MUBS) guild in partnership with the students Dean’s office is planning a relief food initiative to students stranded in hostels and rentals, Campus Bee has learnt.
According to a statement posted on the University’s social media platforms, the intervention is strictly for students who were unable to travel back to their respective homes but stayed in hostels or rentals during the lockdown.
“The relief will help these students at least through the 21 days of the quarantine extension as they continue to observe the safety guidelines,” reads an excerpt from the statement.
Vincent Mugabe,the university guild’s information minister said that the intervention is a guild initiative intended to rescue their colleagues whom they got to know that were stranded in their places of residence.
“Students in hostels should send their information so that we know how many people are there in order to inform the school or government to give them food. We don’t have funds but if provided with the necessary information, we shall seek funding .” Mugabe said.
Students have been asked to submit their name, course, registration number and their place of residence.
“Please send the your details through these contacts; Ndinumukiza Wisdom (Guild Deputy Prime Minister)
0700315236 and Mugabe Vincent Information Minister 0757710981/0780822805. This support is free and thus no solicitations for contributions of any form shall be allowed.” Mugabe further said.
