Community Volunteer Award

2020 Community Volunteer Award Winner is Asiya Tusingwire.

 

Asiya has worked as a community volunteer for the past two years and was recognised for her contribution with the successful DEFEAT TB project.

The community volunteers play an important role in this project from sensitization and screening in the communities, collecting TB sputum for presumptive cases and taking it to the facility for analysis, linking clients to KHC enrolment and treatment, and monitoring adherence to medication and tracking TB patients who miss clinic appointments.

“Even with her very busy work load Asiya also unselfishly supports other programs at KHC such as the HIV project and the Orphans and Vulnerable Children’s programs” says the Community Manager.

 

She is indeed a worthy winner. Congratulations Asiya.
