Thank you for loving me € Mabel Atemo

€œThank you for your love and support, that even amidst all the hard economic times, you still find it in your hearts to love me. This is truly humbling and God will reward you all,€ said Mabel Atemo as she received a contribution from the College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS).

Through donations from students, staff and friends of the College among them, Eng. Charles Wana-Etyem, the chairperson Makerere University council, Prof. Waswa Balunywa, the Principal-Makerere University Business School (MUBS) and many others, a total of sh,2,252,000 was raised in cash.

Speaking while handing over the money to Mabel on Monday 27th February, 2012, Prof. Ikoja Odongo, the CoCIS Principal urged the government to set up a Special Fund to specifically cater for the medical bills of patients like Mabel. €œCases of heart diseases, kidney diseases and other ailments are on the raise, the government needs to quickly come to their rescue through a special fund that can be administered by the national medical board,€ he said.

Ikoja thanked the students, staff members and other well-wishers for contributing towards Mabel€„¢s medical bills. He also thanked Mabel for her fortitude that has seen her persevere even when she is weak.

The students, led by Michael Mutumba encouraged Mabel to continue having a positive attitude, adding that the whole student community was praying for her.
