Child sponsorship programmes began in 2009, caring for children with life threatening illnesses such as AIDS and children with various physical disabilities.

In 2011 Manchester Airports Group offered to sponsor Medcare in a 3 year project aimed to increase the size of Wellspring.

The newly enlarged and refurbished Wellspring Medical Centre was opened in 2014. Additional services included a physiotherapy department, child sponsorship facilities, administration office, antenatal and postnatal clinics, vocational training unit, a new laboratory and enlarged ward.

Medcare continues to raise funds for sustainability and continued development of services to disadvantaged Ugandan children.
