SWICO contributed to the Martyrs’ day celebrations by donating umbrellas. On the day, Fort Portal Diocese, which last animated the martyr’s day celebration 25 years ago led the event, under the theme, “Baptized and sent to witness Christ with love and hope”.

Uganda’s Martyrs’ day holiday commemorates the late 19th-century martyrdom of 23 Anglican and 22 Catholic men who were put to death on the orders of then-King of Buganda Mwanga II for having converted to Christianity.
