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 and provide them with the knowledge that they are loved by others and by God. 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.
