Sheik Ssozi Yahaya Abdunuru acknowledged Kinyara Sugar Limited’s support for food security, education, and economic development among Muslims in Masindi district.

Ramadhan, the holy month of fasting, officially began for Muslims on March 10, 2024, and is expected to end with Eid celebrations on April 9 or 10, 2024. During this month, Muslims observe fasting from dawn to sunset, refraining from food and drink, and engaging in acts of worship, self-reflection, and charity.

Giving back and helping those in need are fundamental principles of Ramadhan, and it is considered a time of increased compassion, generosity, and unity among Muslims worldwide.

At the center of this spirit of compassion, generosity, and unity is Kinyara Sugar Limited’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, which supports values and inspires communities in Uganda.
