Uganda Cranes and Charlotte Independence defender Henry Kalungi has initiated the Henry Kalungi foundation.

The foundation is intended to help the under privileged children in the society who aspire to play football at the biggest stage in life.

On Wednesday, Kalungi who was accompanied by his wife Jacqueline Kalungi, Tom and Susan Gunderson, SC Villa CEO Ivan Kakembo among others, took to Buganda Road Primary School playground to give to charity.

He demonstrated football skills to children from the neighboring slums of Makerere Kivulu and Katanga before donating scholastic and football gear as a way of motivating them.

“1 Chron 16:34 “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever”!

We are looking forward to doing our best to change kids lives.Thank you everyone and God bless you all.We shall post more pictures later and videos” Kalungi wrote on his official facebook page.
