California based Ugandan musician Desire Luzinda launched a charity umbrella Desire Luzinda Foundation International (DLFI) to broaden her humanitarism and norble base. The aim of the foundation is to attract more sustainable and predictable funding and to simplify the process of accepting philanthropic contributions from her friends, family and well-wishers across the globe.
At a VIP coveted dinner at Kampala Serena Hotel, Desire hosted over 500 guests, appeared to have also missed entertaining her fans over time and this time, she performed with a 6 piece band in a gospel style officiated by Apostle Lubega Grace of Phaneroo Ministries. In attendance was Hon. Amelia Kyambadde, Hon. Miria Matembe, and Hon. Nyeko Derick amongst other eminent figures.
“Over time, we have been blessed with the talent and wisdom to apply it to use. It’s time we take it a step higher, carry the sound and the message to where it belongs, help those in need that’s why i have boldy founded DLFI. The equity parity is what we need,”Desire said before she did covers of gospel songs such as “Imela” by Nathaniel Basset featuring Enitan Adaba, “Never Give Up” by Tasha Cobbs Leonard, and “Because he Lives” by Gaither Vocal Band. She did this with a six-piece band officiated by Apostle Grace Lubega of Phaneroo Ministries.
The official launch of the singer’s NGO was organised by Bryan Morel Publications and production by Fenon Records.
Through Ms. Desire Luzinda, a transitioned inspiring artiste and goodwill ambassador, DLFI began its operations by assisting local girls at Uplift Children’s Center in Lungujja Kampala, a remote area in Central Uganda. For many years, she has been single handedly organizing outreaches to collect and donate items such as scholastic materials, beddings and food to this orphanage to which Ms. Desire is their PATRON.
Since then, DLF has worked continuously with the communities through projects of education, livelihood, agriculture and cultural exchange. It has also developed an international network of experienced, professional, local and international staff well placed to partner with finding bodies, partners and other collaborating service providers.
Amongst those that gave strong testimonies of Desire’s charitable deeds, were her co-founders Mathew Takatamoe and Eric Ndawula who also also her church mates at Phaneroo.
