Gor Mahia defender starts fundraiser to aid foot surgery bill

Gor Mahia defender Shafik Bhachu Batambuze’s appeal for financial help to aid him undergo surgery to heal his left knee has gone a notch higher with the Ugandan sending out an M-Changa account number for the same purpose.

Batambuze, a member of the Uganda Cranes national team that graced the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in 2017, picked an injury in his left knee as Gor Mahia faced Burundian side Aigle Noir in the Champions League on Sunday 25 August at MISC, Kasarani.

Kshs 420,000

While Gor Mahia ended up 5 – 1 winners, it was not a very good ending for Batambuze, who would later find out that he needs $ 4,123 (about Kshs 420,000) to cater for the medical expenses to manage the injury.

With the club already undergoing financial challenges as main sponsors, SportPesa fight to get their license cleared by the government, the defender has taken steps to raise the funds.

The M-Changa Paybill Number for the fundraiser is 891300 with the account name Bhachu. Simply, follow this link to get to the contributions page https://changa.page.link/Snwhn
