Maranatha Children’s Center
Maranatha Children’s Center is located in Masaka, Uganda and is home to 26 children. The children attend local government schools that are within walking distance. Many of the boys and girls are on school soccer teams and most enjoy music.
The Widows Co-op near Hope for Children Center is made up of 25 widows ranging in age from 35 to 85, each caring for their orphaned children, grandchildren, great grandchildren or community children. The co-op provides income as well as invaluable emotional support to its members. The business of the co-op is renting tents and chairs for funerals, weddings and special events. Their next goal is to add catering to their business. The income they earn enables them to send the children in their care to school.
St. Viane’s Medical Clinic and Mobile Medicine Unit
Located in one of the poorest slums of Masaka,Uganda, St. Viane’s Medical Clinic was founded in 2015 by Derick Nabulumbi, an alumni of Maranatha Children’s Home. After completing nursing school, Derick opened the clinic to fulfill his dream of giving back to the community. The clinic provides HIV testing, de-worming for children, general medical treatment,childbirth and medications. People pay what they can afford and no one is turned away. In February 2020, a brand new clinic was built to address the great need for health care services in this area. Recently a Tuk-tuk was purchased and outfitted, taking medical care to remote villages to serve the critical needs of those who are unable to travel.
