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.

Medcare Covid update and appeal to save the starving

Medcare Covid update and appeal to save the starving

In the UK, despite high numbers of COVID cases and continuing deaths, we have been privileged to receive good hospital care for those falling seriously ill with the coronavirus infection, vaccinations for the vast majority of our adult population and continued testing when necessary. In Uganda test kits are expensive and not readily available and recorded cases are rapidly rising every day. It has been reported that, with a population of 44 million people, only 1 million Ugandan people have been vaccinated against COVID, and those with one dose only. Vaccinations are now unavailable. This leaves millions of people still vulnerable to infection and serious illness. Oxygen is in short supply as is sufficient PPE to protect all the country's health workers.
