INTERAID UGANDA/UNHCR DONATES 10 MILLION UGANDA SHILLINGS TO KATALEMWA CHESHIRE HOME

A team of staff from InterAid Uganda, OPM and UNHCR witnessed the donation of 10 million shillings to Katalemwa as a grant from 'ONE BILLION STRONG', A global initiative advancing the United Nations Convention on the rights of persons with Disabilities.

InterAid Uganda team was headed by the Assistant Project coordinator, Madam Lilia Aporo, while UNHCR was represented by senior protection officer.

The Executive Director of Katalemwa Cheshire home welcomed the team and led them in touring different sections like the physiotherapy section, occupational, early learning center , and the workshop where they make the devices for persons with disability (wheel chairs, orthopedic shoes, crutches).

 

The team was impressed with the efforts of the home in rehabilitation work they are doing especially for Children. He explained that Katalemwa Cheshire Home for Rehabilitation Services (KCH) was initially set up to provide a family home environment to people who were incurable, sick and physically disabled. Over the years the home has expanded and the emphasis changed from long-term residential care for adults to short-term rehabilitation for children with physical disabilities.

In her remarks, the Assistant Project Coordinator InterAid Uganda, appreciated the efforts of Katalemwa for the work they are doing in serving the communities and also the refugees because all the refugee clients sent to them have been well attended too, strengthening the partnership. She also thanked the other local population for accepting refugees and treating them as brothers and sisters because they are highly traumatized people and it takes a caring person to understand them. She ended her remarks by calling for continued partnerships I serving the disadvantaged.

Speaking at the same function, the UNHCR’s Senior Community Services officer, thanked the management of Katalemwa for the dedicated work they render the community including refugees. She noted that being a refugee is a very testing moment of which any rendering assistance to one refugee is very paramount. She therefore noted that UNHCR through Inter Aid has been able to make a contribution of 10 million shillings cheque as a contribution towards the noble cause of helping persons with disability.

Finally, the Executive Director, Katalemwa Cheshire appreciated Inter Aid’s efforts in helping the needy particularly the refugees and commended for continued partnership.
