The fundraising event is going to be held at YMCA court, Wandegeya – Kampala from 6PM.

“The games are set to be free of charge to all members of the public, with lots of fun activities, auctions and a party experience lined up to facilitate what promises to be a never-seen-before CSR event in the basketball circles,” said Club PR and Marketing Dzyre Mugumisa.

“Sitting, standing, walking and even lying down, at one point or another, is currently a source of pain for her.

“The surgery is very expensive and beyond the financial capability of her family.

“JKL, as part of our CSR, we
found it inevitable to support Zam get closer to achieving the pain free life she deserves. We just hope we can contribute a substantive percentage to the 15000 USDs Zam needs for the surgery.”

Zam, in 2018, acquired a Bachelor’s Degree in Development studies from Makerere University.
