Student Cancer Clubs within Uganda


One of the most amazing outcomes of the visits that House of Hope Uganda has made to Kampala and the Uganda Cancer Institute, is the response from local schools in creating groups that visit the pediatric ward and work on spreading awareness about cancer within their home country.  The four original clubs (House of Hope Namagunga Cancer Club, House of Hope Gayaza Cancer Club, House of Hope Buddo Cancer Club, and the House of Hope St. Mary's College Kisubi) have since blossomed into 35 clubs in different local Kampala schools!


When we realized that these people came all the way from the United States to see what they could do for the patients at UCI, we said to ourselves we need to do something too! We are here and we can make a difference too!
