Details

Katalemwa Cheshire Home was founded in Uganda in 1970 and officially opened in 1971, with the aim of providing a family home environment to people who were incurably sick or with physical disabilities. This was significant, as at the time, institutional rehabilitation was the only option for people with disabilities.

Unfortunately, Katalemwa suffered considerable setback during Idi Amin’s regime and outside support was very limited. However, the Leonard Cheshire Foundation in the UK continued to send messages of hope and support.

In 1988, Captain Leonard Cheshire came in person to Kampala to make a plan for reconstructing the home following the 20 difficult years that had left it in ruins. With the assistance and support of several groups including the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, the home began to function once again.

In 1994, Katalemwa Cheshire Home for Rehabilitation Services became a centre for children with disabilities, with the belief that short to medium-term rehabilitation for children provides the starting point for an empowered and fulfilled life. In 2000, the National Council of Cheshire Homes was formed to coordinate activities of all the Cheshire Homes in Uganda. Katalemwa therefore ceased to have responsibility for the other homes and started increasing rehabilitation services both at the centre and in the communities through collaborations and partnerships.

A holistic approach to rehabilitation was introduced bringing on board educational support and skills development for parents and children, with the belief that the rehabilitation of a child extends much further than medical care. In 2006, KCH decided to develop a strategic plan with a clear vision that would guide organizational development and program implementation. Today, KCH operates with the guidance of a strategic plan, a strong Board of Directors and Council of Trustees and a clear vision for the future.

It's a rehabilitation center for children living with disabilities. With more support and funding they can probably do more.
