The Rams Rugby Club is appealing to the Uganda Rugby Union fraternity for support to help their club member, Daniel Balaam Lubangken, who is suffering from colon cancer.

The club is requesting any amount of financial assistance that will be humbly appreciated and can be sent via two mobile numbers; Cynthia Roy Nabukeera’s and Tinyefunza Yusuf’s.

In addition to financial support, Lubangken also needs emotional support and prayers, as stated by the Rams on their social media platform X.

Daniel has been suffering from this condition for close to a year since he was first diagnosed late last year (2022). Since chemotherapy and radiotherapy have not been effective, he has been advised to undergo laparoscopy surgery, which is the only viable option left.


The surgery will cost 9 million Uganda shillings (UGX) post-operation. Other expenses will add to the total amount, making it 13 million Uganda shillings.

Dr. Chung at New Mulango will perform Daniel’s surgery. He will be admitted to the hospital on January 5th, 2024, and operated on January 8th of the same year.
