The Uganda Cancer Institute has a static screening clinic and this Van will add to our Outreach services" Hon. Sarah Opendi- Minister for Health incharge of General Duties .

"When i visited this Hospital in 2016, i shed tears when i saw bed ridden cancer patients and some laying on the floor, we will find the money and we shall make the idea of Centre of Excellence possible", said H.E Madhusudan Agrawal
"I don't want anybody to die just because they couldn't afford to come to India. I am told Ugandans come to Mumbai because they can't get services here and since treatment is expensive, they spend a lot of time mobilizing Money and in the end their situations worsen", he said
He added that maintenance Services of the Van will in the initial two years be offered free by TATA the Manufacturers after which SAMTA Foundation will handle the costs.
