Talking to the public on her social media handles, she hinted that she was trying to help the needy because it’s a debt she owes to the people who have loved and supported her.
“The people have loved me and supported me. I have to support them too and I will continue supporting them as long as I can. There’s no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
She has set aside $10,000 (sh35.5m) as a grant to give to other groups that are ready to join her in supporting the needy especially pregnant women.
“This money is meant to help the needy and pregnant women, so those groups that will use this money for the right cause are welcome onboard…,” she said.
She revealed that she is also trying to reach out to other American Organizations that can offer help to the needy in Uganda and is hopeful that many Americans will step up for the cause.
Zawedde was popular during the lockdown when she donated food and money to people in Kampala. She is reportedly paying school fees for the four children that belong to the late Ronald Ssebulime.
She is a businesswoman who reportedly owns a company called Convenient Homecare Services in Boston, USA. She is one of the Ugandans living large in the US.
