Female singer Grace Nakimera is showing her Heart of Gold by helping needy children through her ‘Feed the Street Foundation’.
The “Nkwagala Kufa” hit maker together with her ‘Feed the Street Foundation’ spent Easter Sunday with the underprivileged in Katooke, Kireka in Wakiso district.
“We enjoyed an Easter meal together with over 250 less privileged children. We served them with food and drinks. That was the best and only way we could celebrate Resurrection Sunday,” Grace Nakimera said.
“Most of those kids could have gone hungry if we weren’t there. We also taught them about God and interacted with them to find out the challenges they face,” she added.
Feed the Street Foundation
Nakimera says she started the ‘Feed the Street Foundation’ in 2018 in order to try and change lives for communities.
Through the foundation, she reaches out to various communities to try and to change the lives of the underprivileged especially street children and orphans.
Her foundation has constructed a home for children in Iganga, with over 30 less privileged children under their care.
Prior to her intervention, 10 of the children were living with an old woman in a house that was in a sorry state.
“Some of the kids under the care of the old woman had been abandoned after one month of birth that it made us get touched. We shared the story on social media and within no time, well -wishers had provided some of the materials that enabled us build a better home for them,”Nakimera says.
The foundation plans to construct another home for needy children in Mukono District.
The singer appeals to the public to support the activities of her foundation, whose mission is to change the lives of the underprivileged.
“You don’t have to be rich to rich to help the underprivileged. You can share the little you can. It can be paying school fees for one or two children, or even providing scholastic materials or clothes,” Nakimera says.
