RDSAC registers all people with Down Syndrome in Bunyoro and beyond as its members.
Members, their families and carers meet quarterly when the RDSAC program is reviewed and commented upon. Individuals share their own experiences and seek mutual self-support. This has proved to be a cathartic process. For many it has been the first time they have interacted with others having the same challenges.
Members have received certain support as a group from donors, such as the Covid medicines that were donated by Everett and Austin, and the 2021 Christmas food and clothing that was supported by the Marafiki Foundation. These have made a huge difference to the lives of members and their caretakers.
Members have set up their own savings group or “SACCO”.
