Testimonials
  • Event: Outreach at International Health Science University

    “ I have learnt that carriers live without getting any complications the way sicklers do and that you
    cannot know that you are a carrier unless you test. Intensify sensitisation on social media”.
    “I have learnt how sickle cell is acquired. Services should be extended to villages”.
    “Please intensify screening in universities as you give information as well. Thank you for the work”.

  • Event: University Exhibition at Lugogo

    “I have got good information about sickle cell. More sensitisation is needed. Thank you for the good
    work”.
    “People have wrong information about sickle cell. More sensitisation is needed and screening. I have
    learnt how sickle cell disease is acquired”.
    “Ive learnt it is vital to go for medical check ups. I applaud the team for the services and hospitality. I
    have learnt how someone with sickle cell can be managed to stay healthy”.
    “I have learnt that sickle cell is genetic and not contagious. Sensitisation must be intensified, testing
    must be done before marriage and before getting children.
    Thank you for the free service because some people cannot afford paying for them”.

  • Event: Buvuma Outreach in Buvuma Island

    “We need more information and support about sickle cell. Counselling was good. Parents need to give
    enough information about their children’s health status to the teachers. Sickle cell testing has to be
    taken serious”.
    “Thank you for the information and screening, this will help us know what decision to take in the future.
    Sickle cell testing should be must to everyone”.
    “I have learnt not to fear to go for health check ups and to like testing for various diseases. There is need
    for more community sensitisation. Train more people so that they get to reach out to many others in
    various places”.
    “Thanks to the presenter for giving clear sickle cell information. We have to be careful when choosing
    marriage partners, we need to test first. Thank you for the screening”.

  • Event: Inter-School Sports gala

    “It was an educative event.Introduce clubs in many schools dealing with issues pertaining sickle cell.
    Avail information to schools in magazines and brochures about sickle cell”.
    “The event was inspiring. You need to extend your services to villages because people there lack a lot”.
    “I have liked the interaction with different students, this will help us put ideas together and see how
    best we can help fellow students living with sickle cell disease keep well in school”.

    In Uganda the dilemma of a sickle cell sufferer and the immediate family goes beyond grappling with the overwhelming health effects of the disease. The deeply-rooted stigma from society alone causes families to sometimes hide their sick for fear of being labeled cursed and eschewed from social functions. When known that a family has a sufferer, intimate relationships with any member of that family are shunned.
