Fortebet, Uganda’s betting giant has continued to show its commitment to helping Ugandans live a better life. In this line, Fortebet has committed a whole 15 million shillings to fighting the deadly sickle cell disease.

This money was handed over to Raising Hope International Friends, an organisation that works hand-in-hand with the government of Uganda to fight the scourge. The money was handed over in two phases. One, 10 million went to boosting the Jinja Sickle Cell Marathon 2020 that took place over the weekend.

Another 5 million was handed over to the Sickle Cell clinic. “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 John Nanyumba while handing over the cheque shortly after the Jinja marathon. Isaac Oke.
