Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has over the years taken a social stand to carry out Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a way of effecting social change in the communities in which it operates.
This has helped build public confidence in the organization, created rapport and paved way for compliance within the taxpaying community.
Like many institutions, URA has today condoled with the bereaved families following the recent landslide in Bududa, Bukalasi.
Information shared on different platforms showed that several villages were washed away, houses destroyed, lives lost, animals destroyed, stocks of coffee, shops and many other precious things were lost.
“It is against this background that URA staff mobilized themselves and donated 50 bags of rice, 50 bags of sugar, 500 blankets, assorted plastics and clothing to the affected families,” Micah Galya, the Ag. Assistant Commissioner Public and Corporate Affairs said in a statement.
He added: “As URA we believe that having a happy and healthy taxpaying community increases compliance. For URA, the culture of charity also has an immeasurable impact on our communities and that is why URA Management has given chance to its employees to contribute their labor to local causes that can also result in meaningful team building and shared personal values.”
