Ugandans in Diaspora Support Kigezi: Join Them May 1st

Kigezi is one of the most beautiful places in Uganda.

Join the Ugandan American Association of Greater New York (UAAGNY) on May Day in their efforts to fundraise for victims of landslides in western Uganda.

On May 1st, UAAGNY will hold an event at Uganda House, 336 East 45th Street, at 7 pm.  A cover of $10 will be charged, and there will be a cash bar.  There will also be an auction, so bring your checkbooks.

Registration for Boston’s annual 2010 Kigezi convention will take place.  There will be a discount offered (just during the fundraiser!) for those wishing to attend.  All money will go to those displaced by the natural disaster.

Heavy rains caused the hilly lands to slide in Kigezi. Many people were left with no shelter; clothing and most of the agricultural crops where the many get to feed their families were destroyed.

If you can’t make it but would still love to donate, please contact UAAGNY’s secretary at

Please join us, and make a difference for those suffering in Western Uganda.
