Success Stories

Muwanguzi Daniel

 

We received Daniel a few hours after having been born and dumped in a pit latrine by his mother. Social inquires were conducted to locate his family.  We were able to eventually identify several of his family members and after approximately one year, he was resettled with his maternal grandmother. We were blessed to care for him and are happy for his life, as we continue to follow his progress.

Tusubila David

David was admitted to Chrystal Children’s Center on May 18, 2017, after being rescued from the depth of a pit latrine in Bweya, Kajjansi. While at the center, David developed into a lovely, healthy, handsome boy. He was reintegrated into his family, where he is now living in a loving, stable environment.

Muwanguzi Mathew

Mathew was admitted to Chrystal Children’s Center on May 12, 2017, when he was abandoned in Entebbe Grade B Hospital by his mother. Mathew was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and had difficulty functioning independently. He lived at the center for some time until Chrystal’s found a suitable place for him to stay. Mathew was referred to a home for disabled children, since this facility offered better services to meet his developmental needs.

Hannah 

Hannah was saved from streets where her mother abandoned her.  Nateete police station handed her over to Chrystal’s, where she stayed for approximately two years. Eventually her family was identified and she was reintegrated into her family.  She now resides with her grandmother. 

Mukiisa Blessing Kisakye

Blessing was admitted to Chrystal Children’s Center on January 31, 2017 at one day old. She was rescued from a pit latrine and taken to Doctor’s Hospital Seguku for a general check up.  The medical examination revealed that she was healthy and also HIV negative. The social welfare team at Chrystal’s is working dilligently to locate her relatives. If these attempts fail,  a local family will be identified through the panel to integrate her into a home setting.

Steven

Steven was a victim of torture, and rescued by the police in Nateete. He was referred to Chrystal’s as a child in need of adequate care and protection. Steven was staying with a half brother who was married, however; his brother’s wife did not want Steven. The social welfare team at Chrystal’s searched for his other relatives and eventually located his grandmother, who was willing to take care of him. Steven has been successfully resettled with his grandmother.

Namubiru Gift

We received Gift very ill from Entebbe Police station, after her mother had gone missing for a year. The people her mother left her with were mistreating her and in fear of arrest, they dropped her off at the local police station. After approximately one year, Chrystal’s was able to find her mother and also find her a educational sponsor.
