PostBank Uganda has been appointed to disburse the government COVID-19 relief funds to the select Ugandans impacted by the pandemic and the ongoing lockdown.

As opposed to distributing food as was in the first lockdown, the government of Uganda through the Office of the Prime Minister is using mobile money to disburse funds to support people that were affected by the re-instating of lockdown intended to curtail the 2nd wave of the pandemic.

George William Kiyingi, the Manager Grants and Strategic Partnerships, PostBank Uganda said, “We welcome and appreciate the move by the government through the Office of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development in appointing PostBank as the viable partner for this project and would like to echo our dedicated support to this project till the end.”

“The payments will be made paid via Airtel Money and MTN Mobile Money to reach 501,107 households across Kampala Metropolitan Area, all cities and municipalities,” Kiyingi remarked, adding that, “of the total UGX 53 billion allocated, everyone will receive UGX. 102, 400.”
