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. 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.

For many children in Uganda health care is often unobtainable, unaffordable and/or inaccessible. We can only continue to provide this life saving care with your help.

MAG Graduates Trip to Uganda

The entire 2014 Manchester Airports Group graduate intake alongside two members of the HR department was very fortunate to visit Uganda in February 2015 with Medcare. During the (packed) week visit, we were involved in a range of different activities; from organising a sports and crafts day at a local school to painting the interior and exterior of a home.

During our visits to the orphanage at Bukulule, Wellsprings Medical Centre and the school in Kamutuuza it was clear to see the children loved the small toys, sweets and bubbles we have brought in our cases. It was apparent from the moment we stepped off the minibus in Bukulule that the children were really excited to meet us, all of them rushing over to give us a big welcome hug.
