Ugandan entrepreneur Hajji Sulaiman Kabangala Mbuga, popularly known as SK Mbuga, has taken the lead in fundraising efforts for the medical treatment of aspiring news anchor Linda Ainembabazi, who is battling stage 3 Fibrosarcoma cancer. Mbuga, also the director of STV Uganda, donated Shs4 million to the cause.
Earlier reports in September highlighted Ainembabazi’s urgent need for a bone marrow transplant due to her Leukemia diagnosis. The public rallied together, and NTV Uganda’s journalist Sudhir Byaruhanga appealed for financial assistance on social media.
Upon her journey to India, Ainembabazi received a different diagnosis of stage 3 Fibrosarcoma cancer, requiring immediate treatment. Faced with the financial strain, her family sought help from the public, leading to a collaborative effort to raise funds.
Ainembabazi’s family reached out to various individuals, including SK Mbuga, who took charge of a charity campaign to collect funds for her medical expenses. SK Mbuga, contributing Shs4 million, joined forces with other fundraisers like Frank Mwesigye, amassing over Shs53 million to support Ainembabazi’s treatment.
SK Mbuga expressed his commitment on X, stating, “Let’s join hands and save this little soul, for ‘whoever saves a life, it’s equivalent to saving the entire mankind.’ I’ve contributed 4 Million Shillings towards this noble cause.”
In a recent video shared by Sudhir Byaruhanga on X, Ainembabazi expressed gratitude to all contributors, sharing that doctors are optimistic about her recovery.
