In a heartwarming display of community engagement, Jelo’s Café in Kawempe, along Ttula Road next to Vegas Chill Out, hosted its first-ever bi-annual charity event, Jelo’s Joyful Giving. The event, which took place on Saturday, featured singer Ava Peace as the headline performer.

Jelo’s Café, only five months into its existence, decided to express gratitude to its first-ever customer, an elderly man known as Ssalongo Balungi, a respected figure in the Kawempe community. As a token of appreciation, Ssalongo Balungi was presented with a package containing food and drink items.

As a leader in the Muslim community, Ssalongo Balungi guided the Jelo’s Café team to nearby homes, extending their goodwill to neighboring families. The event included moments with children, cake-cutting ceremonies, and the capture of joyful memories through pictures.

Zoey encouraged well-wishers to contribute to the charity drive by leaving a coin or note in the donation box located at the restaurant.
