This festive season, the Ruparelia Foundation has organized what they have called Christmas Toy Drive to collect toys for the less fortunate children in orphanages and hospitals. The foundation will also organize a Christmas party for the kids on 15th December.
"Play is a cherished part of childhood and in the spirit of Christmas, we are collecting your unneeded, unused and repaired toys for the less fortunate children. Drop the toys in the Ruparelia Foundation bin at our reception or please call 0702711271 for more information on how you can participate," Ruparelia Foundation said in a statement.
Adding: “A kid's childhood isn't complete without playing with their favorite toys, give the gift of joy this Christmas by joining the Ruparelia Foundation Toy Drive.”
According to Ruparelia Foundation children having toys in their lives helps better a child's behavior, promotes social skills, promotes physical development, boosts a child's mental skills and boosts the child's emotion.
The Ruparelia Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Ruparelia Group, the conglomerate owned by businessman Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia. It has supported charitable causes in different parts of Uganda and disciplines like Education, Community Support, Health, Sports, Startup, Wildlife & Environment.

“We support a number of social wellbeing initiatives through direct involvement of volunteers and through donations to selected causes. Through such activities, we feel a sense of belonging and social inclusion. We believe a connected person is a supported person in society," the foundation says on their website.
