Wellspring Medical Centre

Disabled children in Uganda are often marginalised within their communities and seen as cursed. Many are severely neglected and abandoned by their families. Noeline, herself disabled, believes that being disabled is a form of uniqueness, that all people are equal, and disabled and able-bodied people must have equal rights in every society. She has proved that love is the greatest healer of all. 

The aims of the new home are to provide:

  • safe, hygienic housing for seriously deprived, abused, abandoned, rejected handicapped children, in a loving family environment;
  • a secure future with provision of long term care for the seriously handicapped and vocational training for those more able;
  • integration of the handicapped into local schools and communities, in an attempt to abolish prejudices and superstitions;

- so enabling disabled children to take their rightful places within their communities, providing them with a knowledge of their own self worth and hope for the future.
