REPORT ABOUT THE RENOVATION OF THE KATALEMWA PHYSIOTHERAPY SECTION

At Katalemwa, there is an  increased number of children with disabilities in need of physiotherapy services therefore  management decided that one of the vacant dormitories should be transformed into a physiotherapy section. The aim of this resolution was to create more space to accommodate a bigger number of children with disabilities that can participate in both group and private therapy plus physiotherapy equipment.

Below are some of the activities that were done;

Painting: The proposed physiotherapy room was designed and painted with child friendly colors to motivate them during therapy session; yellow, orange and sky blue were painted

Purchase of furniture: An office table, chair and Cubin were procured for the physiotherapist to be used during assessment, conduct office work and also store client’s files in the cubins

Purchase physiotherapy equipment:  A tens machine and stationed bike were procured to assist in providing exercise and relieve pain for injured clients.

A physiotherapy mirror; We also procured a bigger physiotherapy mirror to motivate children in performing exercises/therapy.

Child friendly Curtains; These were procured to create a private area for some children that require some privacy during therapy.

Inconclusion, we appreciate our donors for this support and we anticipate that this renovated facility will respond to the increasing demand of physiotherapy services thus improving our service delivery. However there are sections that need some uplift like the nursing and occupational therapy department, therefore I argue donors to donate towards this noble cause.

REPORT ABOUT MASK DISTRIBUTION TO CURB THE SPREAD OF COVID-19

Since Uganda went on a lockdown in March 2020 as one of the preventive measures for COVID-19, our organizational programming was disrupted and a number of activities were halted most especially those that involve gatherings.  COVID-19 cases in Kampala are increasing more than anywhere else in the country due to congestion and relaxing of the lock down measures by government for citizens to get back to work.

There are still challenges for masses to accept using masks, as many feel they are uncomfortable/ not necessary and some can’t afford masks. Therefore, Katalemwa Cheshire Home designed and produced some Masks that were distributed in Makindye division Kampala district.

These masks were given to the local council committee members to act as models for village members to learn the relevance of using Masks most especially in public spaces. These masks were branded with a message “support a child with disability” as a reminder that most of the children with disabilities require our support in terms of medical, emotional and physical support.

The Katalemwa Cheshire home Team is continuing to make masks at the center and these are distributed in the community during outreach clinics, home visits and at the center for visiting clients.

Finally, the people in need of masks are many yet our resources are minimal to meet the current demand, therefore I would like to argue donors to support our organization to procure more materials to make masks as we fight against the spread of COVID-19.

Katalemwa Cheshire Home put in place different measures as a response to the COVID- 19 pandemic that has impacted the normal living for billions of people globally. This situation caught us unaware and we resolved to diverting funds to procure items that prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the Katalemwa Community. Katalemwa has a population of over 100 people which include children with disabilities and their caretakers.
Activities
We scaled down the number of people that are at the center as a social distancing measure and only remained with the ones in critical condition: undergoing post-operative care and require closer monitoring. We currently have 30 people ( children and cargivers).
We procured sanitizers, hand washing cans and nutritional food stuff.
