For most of 2016 musician Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine was traversing the country, holding several music shows, which were very successful.
And in what appears to be giving back to his fans, the ‘Specioza’ singer has embarked on helping the needy. He began with the northern region, climaxing this week in Kampala.
Together with his wife Barbara Kyagulanyi and the team from her charity organization, Caring Hearts, they visited the most vulnerable children and handed over 100 mattresses, 100 blankets and 100 mosquito nets.
Among the beneficiaries included Kyankima Home for Abandoned Children in Kasangati, which is run by a single elderly woman with a big heart; Child Focus Uganda in Gayaza, a home for children and youth with intellectual/ physical disability; Save Street Children Uganda in Kamwokya and 15 homes in Kifumbira Zone in Kamwokya.
And yesterday Bobi Wine and his team spent the day on Sowe Island, on Lake Victoria and while there they gave out 100 mattresses, 100 mosquito nets and 100 blankets to pregnant mothers, children, widows, the disabled and orphans.
Also, later this month, on March 22 Bobi Wine is scheduled to perform at Boma Grounds in Moroto for only Shs1000 as part of his charity drive.
Meanwhile, after his acts of charity Bobi Wine went and gave motivational talk about entrepreneurship to students of Makerere University in the Main Hall.
“Creative minds is all we need for the present generation. The little we can do we must do,” he wrote on his Facebook page, adding that he would also visit the Makerere University Business School (MUBS) for a similar undertaking.
“The wind of motivation is moving towards your direction….” Bobi Wine added.
