Ssemakula thanked Nile Breweries for its generosity and for joining hands with government in the fight against #Covid -19.

He said lack of oxygen has been one of the biggest problems with the high number of patients admitted into ICU from the region.

Hospitals were recently hit by shortage of oxygen when cases of Coronavirus surged.

This is the second time during this lockdown that Nile Breweries has extended support towards the fight against #Covid-19.

The first time the Jinja City Task Force was facilitated with 1500 litres of fuel to enable travel of the frontline fighters.

Nile Breweries was represented at the handover by Nicholas Lubwama the Quality Manager and Rogers Sentongo the Distribution Specialist District East.

Lubwama said that Nile Breweries is committed to saving Ugandans by providing major hospitals with the much needed Oxygen Cylinders.
