Renown Ugandan female artist Sheebah Karungi has extended her Corporate Social Responsibility campaign to the Uganda U17 Girls team.
The ‘Wankonakona’ singer made a contribution of 1500 packs of Holic sanitary pads to the Uganda U-17 National women football team in a brief event at Lugogo after the team’s training session at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.
The team has been training to face Cameroon in World Cup Qualifiers, however, the upcoming duel has since been postponed.
‘Praise God. I am so proud of you. I come from a back ground where i started working at 14 years. So I am so proud you that you are young women but you are going to do something big for your selves and the country,” Sheebah is quoted by FUFA.
“You do not know how great you are already. Keep pushing and I know you are going to make it but first things first I want you to be confortable and that is why we decided to extend this gesture to you.”
“We have come to give you Holic Pads and also offer you something beautiful which will make you comfortable when playing on the pitch and beating Cameroon.
“I do not want you to wake up in the morning with a lot of discomfort because of the menstrual times. We want you to feel comfortable and do what you do best so regardless whether you are in your red zone or not. We want you to win because you are destined for greatness.”
The players later had a moment to dance with Sheebah on her famaous collabo with Crysto Panda Kyoyina omanya.
