ABOUT 300 children on Monday received free medical treatment as part of the activities to commemorate His Highness the Aga Khan’s golden jubilee celebrations. The drive, organised by the Aga Khan Development Network, targeted children aged three to eight, from 12 schools in the districts of Mpigi, Wakiso and Kampala.
They were checked and given free drugs at a mobile clinic at Madrasa Resources Centre in Mengo, Kampala.
The campaign was supported by Kampala Pharmaceutical Industries (KPI), Macro Care, Global Touch Organisation and the Aga Khan University, which offered nurses.
“We produce drugs and we couldn’t find any better gift to offer the communities other than free drugs,” said Antony Kuria, KPI’s business manager.
