Irish star teams up with Self Help Africa to promote rugby in Uganda

Former Ireland international; Rob Herring  was keen to partner with Self Help Africa as an informal ambassador for the charity organization.

The biggest eye opener for him was the fact that Self Help Africa has a lot of ongoing work helping many people across Africa and Uganda in particular.

In his words

“Just being here has really opened my eyes to the work SHA are doing and the difference it’s making to people’s lives. I’m just a rugby player in Ireland, but I’d love to help going forward. It’s definitely something I’d like to stay involved in and help as much as I can in whatever way possible.”
