Our Successes

Josephine’s Story...

Josephine is an AIDS orphan who has been sponsored since she was 11 years of age. She lives with her elderly grandmother who is very poor.

She has been successfully treated for TB and received surgery for bilateral cataracts. Without the assistance from her sponsor she may well have died and would certainly have become blind. Josephine is now training to be a hairdresser so that she can earn her own living and help her grandmother.

Mary’s Story...

As a baby Mary had a bilateral below knee amputation following an unknown infection, probably meningitis. She was later abandoned because of her disability and now lives in the orphanage for disabled children.

Medcare raised funds to provide Mary with prostheses and she is now a very active young girl who loves to dance.

Jeremiah’s Story...

Jeremiah was orphaned through AIDS immediately after birth. At 7 months old he was found seriously neglected, malnourished and dying. Urgent referral saved this little boy’s life.

He now lives with his grandfather and has developed into a happy, healthy child.

Isaac’s Story...

Isaac was discovered at three years old with clubbed feet.

A comparatively small sum of £300 meant he could have corrective surgery. He now has an active life and loves playing football!

Florence’s Story...

When Florence was 12 years old she was admitted to Wellspring dying from advanced AIDS and malnutrition.

Emergency treatment saved her life and she is now transformed to a healthy young girl.

Angel’s Story...

Angel was abandoned by her mother and found severely neglected, unable to walk or talk, incontinent and covered in sores. She was found to have severe malnutrition and inactive TB spine.

We found Angel accommodation at an orphanage in Bukulule and gave her medical treatment, together with a medically approved diet. Within four months she was transformed and is now a chatty, happy and healthy little girl. If Medcare hadn’t have found her she would not have survived.
