UGANDA – Unilever’s Royco concluded its month-long Ramadhan campaign by generously donating essential items to assist families in celebrating Eid al-Fitr in an event hosted on April 8th.

As part of this initiative, Royco has distributed sugar, rice, salt, cooking oil, beans, and their signature Royco seasonings to aid families during the festivities.

Royco hosted this grand event  at Kibuli Mosque, Kampala, marking the culmination of its ‘Share Goodness’ campaign. 

The campaign was  aimed at enriching the Ramadhan dining experience for Muslim communities across Uganda – Throughout the holy month of fasting, Royco had dedicated itself to serving Iftar meals at 30 mosques nationwide, spreading the spirit of generosity and sharing its goodness.

Grace Nandawula, Nutrition Category Manager at Unilever, emphasized the significance of these donations.

“The food items we are giving out will greatly help the needy communities. They will also have the opportunity to celebrate Idd with their families and loved ones tomorrow. Working closely with the Imam to mobilize the needy community, witnessing their happiness and gratitude reaffirms the impact of our ‘Share Goodness’ campaign, which has brought so much love and joy to the Muslim community,” she stated.

In addition to the meals, Royco has been offering promotional offers to support the fasting month, recognizing its signature seasonings (Royco Cubes and Royco Mchuzi mix), as essential ingredients to enhance the flavors of traditional Ramadhan dishes.

The Executive Imam of Kibuli Mosque, Sheikh Mutyaba Abdusalam, thanked the media for the initiative and stated, “We extend our heartfelt thanks to Unilever for this remarkable initiative, as well as to the customers who joined in giving back to the community by donating food items. Your generosity has made all the difference in the lives of many during this sacred month.”
