Located in Kawanda, Wakiso District, the orphanage is called Kasangati because it started from there with few children but later relocated to near Kawanda following an increase in the number of orphans sheltering at the orphanage.

Thank you Aga Khan

Editor,

The world does not only operate via commercial enterprises and this has been amply proved by the Aga Khan University Hospital Nairobi.

Their gesture, offering free radiotherapy treatment to over 400 Ugandan cancer patients, even if it were though an MOU with Uganda’s cancer institute, is very commendable and I would wish to suggest that other companies and organizations follow suit.

Not only does this give hope to patients, it also shows that there is a lot of positives in regional cooperation.

Thank you Aga Khan Hospital.
