The Government of India donated four garbage disposal and three fire fire-fighting trucks to Uganda August 14, 2008.
The Indian high commissioner, Niraj Srivastava, handed over the seven vehicles to international affairs state minister Henry Okello Oryem at the High Commission premises in Kampala.
"The donation comes at a time when most of our schools are facing fires. They will help the Police to respond to fire emergencies in the schools and communities. As Kampala expands, the need for proper garbage disposal also increases," Oryem was quoted in the local media.
