Comedian Patrick ’Salvado’ Idringi held one of the biggest comedy shows this country has witnessed in this country dabbed ‘Man from Omboko Season2’ on October 28th at Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala.
And during the build-up to the show as well as the at the show itself, he pledged to donate part of the proceeds from the Singleton-sponsored event to underprivileged children which came off every ticket purchased and also announced that he had already given 3Million to the home of hope.
He fulfilled this pledge on Wednesday, January 3rd 2018 by donating to the Home of Hope, a home for disabled children in Jinja. This is a home of disabled children most of whom were dumped by their mothers/parents after birth and or abandoned later in life. A very passionate and kind lady called Mama Olive decided to start a home for them.
Salvado who went in the company of friends and wife Daphine Frankstock gave Home of Hope domestic supplies including soap, rice, posho, sugar, toiletries; just to mention, and 1.5 million shillings while one of his friends Tony Otoa from the Uganda Chamber of Mines and Petroleum also gave the home Shs. 300,0000 in cash.
Before Christmas, Salvador also gave Angel’s Centre for Children with special needs in Wakiso district domestic supplies and 1.5 million in cash to take them through the festive season. Angel’s center which is similar to the Home of Hope, takes care of children with Celebral Pulse, down syndrome and many other physical and health challenges.
“The one thing that makes me truly happy is to see that I have touched a life positively. I think we should all join our hands to support children with special needs so we can help them live happier lives,” said Salvado.
A close friend who travelled with Salvado known as JoeBlack Manyire could not hold back his tears after looking at the suffering children;
“Once you visit this place, it changes your whole perspective of life, reminds you of how blessed you are to be the way you are physically, health, socially and otherwise. You don’t need to even hear their stories. A quick look at each of these kids and you can tell they have been through a lot”. He posted after the visit.
