Uganda Animal Welfare Coalition held a two-day event in Kapchorwa Uganda, Eastern Region, in cooperation with district leaders.

On September 27th, we spoke in schools teaching 750 primary and secondary school children about rabies awareness, prevention, and animal welfare. In the evening we presented a two hour talk show answering questions and dispelling false beliefs about the disease on Elgon Radio 95.4 FM Kapchorwa. 

On World Rabies Day, 452 cats and dogs were vaccinated and 16 dogs spayed and neutered in the district at no cost to the community. Thank you everyone who participated, volunteered, and supported the event! 

UAWC is an education and animal welfare initiative of Way to Grace
