Children with special needs

In Uganda, Children with special needs are often seen as a curse. At CRANE we believe that they are special gifts from God to special parents and as such, they should be loved and cherished.

CRANE hosts a working group for organisations working with children with special neesa. The group meets every 2 months to share ideas and challenges and to refer children to each other. In addition, the organisations work together to plan a Christmas Party and a ‘Paralympic’ Sports Gala for children with disabilities so that the children are able to compete on a level playing field against children from other places around the city.
