Accomplish funds a variety of healthcare services in Africa. We provide grants to the Kyaninga Child Development Centre to support its occupational and physiotherapy work in Uganda. We also fund a series of epilepsy clinics, bringing medicine and prescriptions to remote, rural communities in Uganda. In Malawi we support the Heart of Mercy, which cares for severely disabled children.
Kyaninga Child Development Centre
Kyaninga Child Development Centre (KCDC) is based in Fort Portal, Uganda, and it offers occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and speech and language therapy. It has established a second centre in Kasese.
Accomplish provides a grant for the salaries of three Ugandan therapists and a social worker, as an efficient way to reach large numbers of children, and a long-term investment in local expertise.
Accomplish runs eight rural epilepsy clinics, spreading from Kagando to beyond Fort Portal, a huge area of western Uganda. Approximately 800 children now receive treatment through these clinics, where medical professionals
diagnose epilepsy and provide prescriptions, medication and information.
Heart of Mercy
The Heart of Mercy project is like a large family, caring for children with disabilities, usually severe, and their parents or guardians, usually grandparents. It is based in poor villages surrounding the picturesque southern Malawian town of Zomba.
Battling with abject poverty and a hostile social atmosphere which rejects their children, families feel ignored and isolated. Accomplish pays for a monthly meeting for the parents/guardians so they can come together to support each other as they face huge difficulties. A physiotherapist from Zomba hospital attends to give instructions about exercises and advice, so these parents are better able to care for their children as well as finding they are not alone.
