Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has lauded the the Rotary group for leading a run and other activities meant to raise funds to help cancer patients.
Ms Kadaga who was the chief guest of the 2020 annual run was impressed by the effort Rotarians have invested in this cause and promised continued assistance from the Parliament of Uganda.
“This is a celebration of a resilience. The Rotary Cancer run has been held not only in Uganda, but also, in the entire world. We shall continue supporting as parliament. Also, I fully support the possibility of screening at the lowest level possible (Health Center 2). Routine screening of cancer should also be encouraged like it is done in China. Congratulations for the effort done this very year and over the years.” Ms Kadaga said.
For the first time since inception in 2011, the Rotary Cancer run was held in a virtual format, across the different corners of the world because of the #COVID19 pandemic.
