Sad News from Uganda.

INERELA+ is shocked to hear of the sudden death of a board member, Sister Stella Canrach. Prior to her untimely death, UNERELA+ held a meeting on the 15th of October 2016 with Religious Leaders and representatives of the army from the military headquarters of Bombo, Uganda. This was part of the call to include most at risk populations like uniformed forces to integrate HIV and AIDS into their curriculum and encourage them to get tested. Sadly, this was the last meeting Sister Stella Canrach (standing between a woman with a handbag and the one with an amber doek) one of the pioneer Board Members of UNERELA+ who passed on after the meeting.

She was suffering from cancer for a long time. INERELA+ wishes to express its sincere condolences to her loved ones and community. She will be solely missed for her commitment in serving those afflicted but again remembered for her selfless work. It was at the same meeting that the LGBTI report was presented and an alarm was raised thereafter for UNERELA+ to adopt an inclusive stance by integrating LGBTI work in their activities for the accessibility of treatment and care to key populations at community level.
