As Coronavirus continues to halt a lot of activities both globally and around Uganda, sports has been victim to this pandemic and because of that sports journalists have found themselves with close to little to do. Today Betway has stepped in to provide relief to sports journalists.
Leading sports betting provider Betway has contributed 3,300 kilograms of rice to help assist those hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. The donation is part of Betway’s commitment to giving back to the country it calls home. 300kgs of this donation will go to Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) to facilitate some of the sports journalists as they continue to do their work in this period.
Many of the sports journalists find themselves having to do work from home and curating featured stories seeing as there aren’t any active sports activities that are going on at the moment.
Betway Donates to Sports Journalists
Betway while working with USPA believe that COVID19 has provided very unprecidented situations for sports in general and now is the time to think about those people always report the stories.
With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting several communities, it has never been more important for companies to stand together with the Ugandan people. With this in mind, Betway’s 3.3 tons of rice donation to the COVID-19 Task Force will supplement the Government’s efforts to ensure that households affected by the pandemic do not go hungry.
“Betway is committed to ensuring that the communities we work with are safe, have food and basic necessities to last them through the lockdown,” said Betway Country Manager Adellah Agaba Nyaruhuma. “We care about sports development and the communities that support local teams especially those that we sponsor; Express FC, Betway Kobs and Betway Power. We urge everyone to stay safe and observe MOH guidelines as we fight this Pandemic.”
Besides being one of the biggest sports betting companies in the country, Betway is also the leading betting company that supports and sports local sports team. They currently have lucrative deals with rugby giants Kobs, 6 times Uganda basketball champions Power and of course one of the biggest football teams in the country, Express FC.
