As SORAK Development Agency held a community based AIDS day celebration,December 1st 2012, for her TB advocacy campaign in Mubende, TB survivors and those on treatment used it as an appropriate opportunity to encourage government, district and local authorities to give TB case finding and treatment the priority it deserves.

‘’It is not acceptable for us poor people to continue dying from treatable diseases’’ asserted a survivor.

He observed that it was disheartening to note TB services are an area that has been neglected for so long. He spoke vehemently asking the policy makers to ensure that no more people die of TB in our community. He pledge to work with other TB patients and SORAK to react out to more persons who could be danger of having TB,advise them to seek testing and eventual treatment. He thanked SORAK and her supporters through global giving.

He was hopeful that with further support more marginalized TB patients would be reached;

Dear supporters, it is perhaps your next dollar that will bring hope to other members who are vulnerable to TB but not yet reached. Support us to reach them in the last mile of our underserved villages
