In 2008, YES Uganda opened Manna Rescue Home for orphans living with HIV. It has room for 30 children, many of whom were weak from illness and malnutrition when they first arrived.
The rescue home has a staff of 9 people and 1 volunteer, all who work to care for the children giving them proper nutrition and medication, counselling and most importantly a loving home.
With 30 orphans, 9 staff, a small vegetable farm, and numerous animals, Manna Rescue Home is a busy place!
For more information, please see YES Uganda’s website.
In 2013, the need for support and counselling for those children and their families negatively impacted by life events, was identified. A pilot project was initiated in October 2013 where HEAL International, in collaboration with Manna Rescue Home, hired a local trained counsellor to be available at the school as needed. Standard reporting templates have been developed to help us evaluate the impact of this program and implementation is being closely monitored.
The Archibald Project recently visited Carol Adams and the Manna Rescue Home. They made a wonderful video about her and the work she does.
