Kansai Plascon Uganda has donated paint worth UGX. 50 million to Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services in Uganda (CoRSU)
Mr Santosh Gumte, the Managing Director Kansai Plascon Uganda, who led the company to CoRSU Rehabilitation Hospital on Wednesday, said the donation was to support the hospital in its construction projects.
He said under their corporate social responsibility program, they were supporting the hospital because of the good it is doing to help children.
“CoRSU rehabilitation Hospital was selected this year for the fantastic work they are doing with the children” said Mr Gumte.
“I am very honoured to be here today. Plascon is the number one paint company in Uganda and that is because of the love Ugandans show us. The donation comes as a part of our recently concluded ‘Paint and Win’ Colour Cup Edition’” he added.
Dr Andrew Muleledhu, the managing director CoRSU Rehabilitation Hospital, hailed Plascon for the donation.
“Thank you very much Plascon for this donation. CORSU has been open in this country for 15 years now and most of our buildings need of refurbishing. That is why we are very happy to receive this donation today” said Dr Muleledhu.
“We shall be applying this to the private ward to help us attract even more patients to get medical attention and care here. I hope other companies can follow the lead of Plascon,” he added.
The Plascon team that comprised Mr Gumte, National Sales Manager Moses Kato and Brand Manager Daniel Kayongo were led on a tour of CoRSU hospital by their Public Relations Officer, Dorothy Mutabazi.
Mr Gumte led the team in a light painting activity of one of the walls at the hospital that is currently undergoing renovation.
CoRSU was established in 2009 as a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization in Uganda.
