COVID-19 and Lockdown Update

Per the Ugandan government’s orders, Otino Waa and our CBC partner schools have closed and students had to return to their villages. Our highest priority is food security and medical care for each child. Our staff is visiting the children weekly to bring food, provide medical treatment, and assess how they are doing. The Medical and Dental Clinic is open 24/7 and we have nurses solely dedicated to providing medical care to our children in their villages.

We are providing food to over 2000 people each week and keeping families fed during the food shortage. Your support is crucial at this time! Click here to GIVE.

What We Do




Medical and Dental Clinic


The Medical and Dental Clinic at Otino Waa Children's Village serves hundreds of individuals in northern Uganda. Without the clinic, many of these people would not receive the care they need.

 

The Need


This video takes you deep into the village to meet some of the vulnerable children on the waiting list to enter Otino Waa. There are between 500-1,000 children in the surrounding area that qualify for admission and the need is very great. The only thing keeping Otino Waa from growing is lack of funding.

This video shares the journey of two orphans in Uganda. When we first met them in 2012, they were living in the bush with their elderly grandmother. In 2013, space at Otino Waa Children's Village opened up. See what their life is like in 2014.
