1,000 People Grace Fortebet-Jinja Sickle Cell Run

Fortebet, Uganda’s betting giant has continued to show its commitment to saving the lives of Ugandans living with sickle cell. In this line, Fortebet committed a whole 15 million shillings to fighting the deadly disease, part of which was used to organize a successful run on Sunday last weekend.

This money was handed over to Raising Hope International Friends, an organisation that works hand-in-hand Ugandan government to fight the scourge of sickle cell disease. We believe that by working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of those affected by this disease.

Available information indicates that 20,000 babies are born with sickle cell every year. Unfortunately, due to inadequate treatment and care, 80% of them die before the age of 5.

This is very worrying and is the main reason we came on board to save lives,” said Alex Muhangi, Fortebet Brand Ambassador talking to the runners shortly after the run. The run was graced by Busoga first deputy prime minister, Ahmed Noor.

In similar story by NEWSLEXPOINT.com, Fortportal will for long remember last Saturday after a blistering Fortebet-Alex Muhangi soccer tour.

As it has been, the football fever started with a give back to Tooro Babies’ Home with daily use items. The battle for the inter branch championship then rolled to the Bukwari Play Ground.
