Uganda Christian University (UCU) recently held a Health Awareness Week, with blood donation and vaccination of people against Covid-19 among the activities. Vice-Chancellor Assoc. Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi invited UCU community members to participate in events to show they care about their health and that of their neighbors. The activities included vaccinating people against Covid-19, sessions on body mass awareness, a blood donation drive and sports games.
The health week was launched on February 13 during the Sunday service at Nkoyoyo Hall. At the launch, Mushengyezi signed a commitment board that was designed by Fine Art students. At the same event, UCU Chaplain, the Rev. Eng. Paul Wasswa, thanked the university’s health team for serving the community. Every semester, UCU holds the Health Awareness Week to create awareness about good health practices. Below is the week in pictures.
