LONDON- THE FRIDAY night fatal road accident involving Gaagaa bus, a tractor and a beer truck has attracted the attention of people around the world.
And while people at home (Uganda) are doing all that is possible to see the departed souls given eternal rest, and those wounded recovering quicker, Ugandans living in United Kingdom are mourning together.
As a proof, section of Ugandan under their umbrella body UK-UGANDA CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP on Saturday started collecting money to help victims’ families with burial expenses.
By 20:13 pm Ugandan time on Saturday, at least 670 British Pounds (roughly Shs. 3,305,478.5 million shillings) was raised.
Hellen Betty Ogwal, a Ugandan in United Kingdom said, adding that without prayers and support they wouldn’t have done the job (contributing) the money.
Pastor Henry Opio Emuna who lives in London too, says the financial support is to help bereaved families.
Meanwhile, a joint memorial prayer took place at Akii Bua Memorial grounds in Lira town on Sunday.
Hundreds of thousands of mourners from across the sub region and Uganda attended it.
