The slums league kicked off on the April 9 in Kilombe Makindye
The Dream Football Community League outreach that involves free HIV testing and cancer screening, brought a big crowd of about 700
to Kikubamutwe, a slum in Makindye Division in Kampala.
“About 700 people turned up for the event and of course not all 700 received the free testing and screening. Some just wanted a word with the medical professionals,” said chief strategist Amosrich Webbcom.
The slums league kicked off on the April 9 in Kilombe Makindye and Kikubamutwe with the second leg of the series played on Sunday.
Uganda Cares, Pride Microfinance, Skin Guard, Walking Football Ajax Kampala Youth, and Uganda Cancer Institute were some of the teams that took part in the Sunday matches.
A select Kikubamutwe team also competed in the seven a side tournament.
Uganda cares and Skinguard had the best outing with the latter winning four and losing one while the former, won four and drew one.
The free cancer screening on Sunday was made possible by Pride Microfinance that sponsored the service at the venue.
