Together with the Nkumba Rotary Club, we hosted our annual outreach on 26 August. Various activities were organised to contribute to combatting cancer among the Ugandan population.
A total of 527 people participated in free screening sessions. A day later, we organised a special Cancer Run. Its purpose: collecting as much money as possible for the Nsambya hospital to purchase essential cancer treatment equipment.
Cancer is a growing problem in Uganda. Too many people are still dying from treatable forms of cancer due to a lack of proper facilities. Six of the ten most common types of cancer in Uganda are caused by infectious diseases.
