General medical check-up for Marembo children

Within the last three months, our works kept on focusing on physiological and psycho-social needs of the homeless children, young mothers victims of rape and their babies accommodated in the centre for rehabilitation purpose.

Throughout this period, we received 34 new children. Many of them had been living on street experiencing bitter life and struggle for living.

To ensure that their health are in good condition with due treatment, all the newly admitted children together with other children had general check-ups. Through our Imirasire Youth Clinic and Laboratory, some were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS which required them to immediately start taking ARVs and only one case of patient diagnosed with Hepatitis C.

Apart from medical check-ups, the babies of these teen mothers were enrolled in vaccination program.

Health and Wellbeing is our priority. Psycho-social and medical rehabilitation was highlighted to address the problems arising from the girls’ extreme experiences such as seriously damaged emotional and mental health , very low self-esteem and self-confidence, malnutrition , sexually transmitted diseases and DNA testing to restore identity and providing justice to the victims.
