In Uganda there are over one million disabled children, many abandoned by their families and marginalised in their communities. There is very little health provision for such children and virtually no social assistance. 40 disabled orphans in Bukulule, Uganda, are presently housed in a small, unhygienic home, built on uneven, dangerous land. They are cared for by Noeline, a loving, caring Ugandan woman who is herself handicapped. Re-housing is essential for these children for their future health and welfare.The new home will comprise dormitories, toilets, shower blocks, kitchen, dining area, in-door and out-door play areas, physiotherapy room, sick bay, office, vocational training rooms and land for self-sufficiency farming. Noeline's Home will provide disabled children with a safe, loving environment in which to grow and develop, providing them with a knowledge of their own self-worth and hope for the future, and enable them to take their rightful places within their communities.
Noeline is a disabled Ugandan woman who cares for up to 35 abandoned or orphaned disabled children in Uganda. She has been looking after these children in a small home with only 4 rooms and a kitchen.
Money has been raised by Medcare (www.medcare.org.uk) to build a new home for these children which will house a minimum of 40 children and will provide much need space and facilities.
Once the home is built, a lot of work needs to be done to complete the new home such as painting & decorating, constructing a children's play area and digging over the land for farming.
Employees from SPL International have volunteered to visit Noeline's home and help with these tasks to complete the home, as well as visit the local Wellspring Children's Medical Centre and a number of village homes which highlight the poverty and serious needs of Ugandan children.
This page is to raise money to help pay for some of the expenses for the volunteers to travel to Uganda. These expenses include flights, vaccinations, accommodation and antimalarials.
