At Medcare we are dedicated to providing health and social care to thousands of sick, desperately poor, Ugandan children

The aims of the charity Medcare are to ensure health equalities for sick, vulnerable, deprived children in the developing world through medical and social care. The main focus of our work is a dedicated children's medical centre, called Wellspring situated in Uganda in in the village of Kamutuuza, 60 miles south of Kampala, serving half a million children within a 20 mile radius of the centre.

For many children in Uganda health care is often unobtainable, unaffordable and/or inaccessible. We can only continue to provide this life saving care with your help.

To have spent ten days in Uganda seeing the work of Wellspring and Medcare in action can only be described as a privilege. As a Nurse experienced in humanitarian development and disaster response, I have been truly moved by this experience. It is no understatement or cliché to say that Medcare really has transformed and saved the lives of many children in a rural area of South West Uganda.

Previously I worked in a hospital in the north of the country and it was during this period back in 2010 that I first visited the Wellspring Children’s Medical Centre. Since then, the size of this healthcare facility has grown significantly to accommodate the needs of the local population and the increasing number of patient referrals. Many of us take access to healthcare for granted and consider it to be a basic human right. This is something that Medcare is making a reality for the children of Kamatuuza and the surrounding districts. I lost count of the number of children who presented with Malaria and this at a time considered to be ‘low season’ for this disease before the onset of the seasonal rains.
