When SORAK went out to hard to reach areas with TB prevention,signs and symptoms messages, little did we now that we could save lives with a few dollars. With as little as 10 $, we have been able to reach out to a couple that lived with TB un knowingly.
Our supporters on global giving are making us reach to last village and contributing to zero death from TB in uganda.
SORAK has been actively involved in advocacy ,communication and social mobilisation.With support from Global giving we reach out to hard to reach villages with messages and information on TB signs and symptoms. We later go on Local community FM radio stations to tell communities what are the symptoms?,how TB can be spread,prevented and where to get services including testing,drugs etc.
Our approach has made wonders and have had success stories like the one presented in the attachement below.
Dear supporters, your hard earned money as little as 10 $ means a lot to us .It can save lives as it did to the two couples who were about to die, when we first discovered them.
“I’m so happy with SORAK, had it not been the health programme and the encouragement to us, my wife and I would be dead by now,” he commends.“I have already completed the TB dosage and I am happily living a positive life on ARVs,” Fred concludes his testimony. He contemplates moving to fellow villages and encourage them seek TB testing.Attachments:
