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.

Johnson's Journey

Johnson's Journey

Johnson was born on 11th August 2013, the only son of Joseph and Proscovia, a Ugandan couple living in extreme poverty in Masaka, Uganda. Tragically, very soon after birth, it was obvious that Johnson was not a well child and it was discovered that he had been born with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot.

Tetralogy of Fallot  involves four anatomical abnormalities of the heart and, in the so called developed world,  is treated with corrective surgery, usually within the first year of life. Tetralogy of Fallot results in low oxygenation of blood.  The primary symptom is low blood oxygen saturation with or without cyanosis from birth (blue baby) or developing in the first year of life. Other symptoms include  difficulty in feeding, failure to gain weight, retarded growth and physical development, and shortness of breath on exertion.
