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.
Wellspring provides health and social care to children under the age of 18 years living within a 15 mile radius of the centre, of which there are half a million children.
Medcare’s present projects aim to provide improved medical and social care to disabled, marginalized children in rural Uganda.
The Kingsley Explosion charity bonfire and firework display held on October 29th on the Kingsley Playing Fields was a great success. The weather remained dry and mild, over 250 people attended the event, the bonfire was enormous (thanks to the generous supply of wood from Kingsley residents) and the fireworks were amazing. Kingsley was able to boast of a spectacular 15 minute firework display which thrilled all who were watching. Apologies were sent to all the dog owners however!
£3,000 was raised for the charity Medcare - a wonderful result which will enable Medcare to transform the lives of hundreds of Ugandan children from sickness and despondency to health and hope.
