Government Chief Whip Thomas Tayebwa says that Rotary Clubs have proposed solutions to problems faced by the country’s communities, providing life-saving equipment, birth kits, support to pregnant women and children under five, a great contribution to the developement of the health sector in Uganda over the years.
The 1 billion Shillings project was initiated in honour of the Late Sam Owori, the first Ugandan to be elected President of Rotary International, a humanitarian service organisation that unites professionals committed to improving lives and bringing positive change to communities around the world.
Barry Rassin made the announcement during a meet and greet gathering organized by the district in preparation for the first ever East Africa Project Fair scheduled to take place at the Imperial Resort Hotel in Entebbe.
Sam Owori was accorded a 3-gun-salute as his body was lowered to his final resting place, seen off by Rotarians from more than 20 countries as well as cultural, religious and political leaders, among others.
Samuel Frobisher Owori was scheduled to be the first Ugandan to lead Rotary International, a humanitarian service organisation that unites leaders committed to improving lives and bringing positive, lasting change to communities around the world.
The annual cancer run organized by Rotary International is this year aimed at raising 4 million US Dollars to equip the Nsambya Hospital Cancer Ward with a cancer treatment machine. The machine is said to help in treating cancer by destroying the cancerous cells without affecting the surrounding issue.
