Speaking through a phone call interview, Ministry of Health (MoH) spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyoona disclosed that the Director of General Health Services gave the organizers of singer Evelyne Lagu’s charity concert the green light to go on with the preparations.
Mr. Emmanuel Ainebyoona revealed the information after Lagu’s friends wrote to the Ministry of Health requesting to hold a charity concert to collect funds to fly the singer to India for a kidney transplant surgery.
Their request followed a successful car wash fundraiser campaign that they previously held for ailing musician and collected about Shs 61M out of the required Shs 250M that is meant to facilitate her and her son who is going to offer his kidney to her.
The director of general health services however cautioned the organizers to follow the SOPs so as to curb on the spread of the novel Covid-19 disease plus allowing the organizers not to permit more than 200 people at the venue.
The local actress and singer has for long been down and battling with heart complications and kidney failure since 2019 and she has been on several occasions in and out of hospital.
We wish the concert turns out to be a success for the singer to be flown out of the country for better treatment.
