The event was graced by H.E Uhuru Kenyatta and collected over Ushs350M to help in bolstering the Uganda Cancer Institute. Presidents Kenyatta and Museveni donated shs 70M and shs 100M respectively.
This is not the first time that the lady with a big heart is offering a helping hand.

This is only a few of the many nationwide charity projects that Katatumba has organized.
