The executive director, TERREWODE, Alice Emasu Seruyange, said the bicycles are to help the survivors intensify community mobilisation and awareness, focusing more on supporting those who need treatment and social integration services.

“We took time to understand the greatest need of the survivors and the consensus was that transport was a limiting factor into their contribution to the fight.

"We gave them bicycles to ease their work. Participants are coming all across eight districts of Teso subregion,” she said.

Majority of them are members of the fistula solidarity group run by women who suffered fistula, got treated and rehabilitated into the community.
