UPPC-COU-DONATION-EBB

The Uganda Printing and Publishing Corporation (UPPC) on Wednesday last week participated in a service organized by Entebbe Police to welcome the new Archdeacon of Entebbe COU Parish, Ven. Canon John Gitta Kavuma.

The service that was held at Entebbe Police division headquarters was led by  Ven. Canon John Gitta Kavuma and was attended by the Entebbe Police Community fraternity together with other community members and institutions.

During the function, there was fundraising for the ongoing construction of Entebbe COU parish. UPPC contributed 100 bags of cement for construction of the house of God.

The UPPC Ag. Managing Director – Kenneth Geoffrey Oluka said “UPPC is a God-fearing work environment. We acknowledge God in our day-to-day duties.’’ “It is not by surprise that we are here today to join hands and to support the work of constructing the Lord’s house,” he said.

He welcomed and congratulated the new Archdeacon of Entebbe COU Parish, and assured him of a good cardinal relationship between the Corporation and the Church. “This is not our first contribution to clerical work. In 2019, the corporation contributed 10 (ten) million shillings to the construction of the Church House. We welcome you dear archdeacon and pledge to work with you in doing the works of God.’’ Oluka explained.

The new Archdeacon thanked UPPC through the Ag. Managing Director for the good noticeable works of the corporation and for promoting good community relations. ‘’I thank the UPPC Ag. Managing Director-Mr. Oluka for the positivity expressed by the corporation to support God’s work continuously. It is one thing to know God and another to honor him in our daily routine tasks. I also commend the corporation for the good notable working relations with other institutions. I shall make an official visit to UPPC and I’m intentional about mutual relations since I write books,’’ Rev. Kavuma noted.

Entebbe Division Police DPC, SP Irama Vicent said they were humbled by the new Archdeacon’s visit to police. On behalf of Police, he presented donations to Entebbe COU Parish which included impressive ecclesiastical seats to the new Archdeacon among others. He also appreciated UPPC for being generous to the Church and for upholding a resourceful partnership with the police forces of Entebbe.

Mr. Oluka told the gathering that UPPC this year will mark 120 years of dedicated excellent services to the printing and publishing industry of Uganda. He said the corporation has organized a series of activities and invites all institutions and individuals to celebrate the milestones achieved in the past century. “We have prepared a launch of the celebrations in July this year, we shall publish a souvenir magazine to tell our journey, have a walk, exhibition, engage in various corporate social responsibility activities to support our people and communities,’’ Oluka said.
