About the Cause

Did you know that over 1.4 million children in Uganda live with some form of disability and are often discriminated and marginalized? Children are the future and it is important to address their needs and secure a brighter future for all.

In our pursuit to give back to society, we have partnered with various organizations to help improve the lives of differently-abled children by providing access to their treatment free of cost.

To see this through, we need your help. By simply buying a Lato Help Pack, 100% of the gross proceeds net of taxes from the sale of these packs will go into the treatment of differently abled children.

100% gross proceeds net of taxes from the sale of Lato Help pack will go towards the treatment of the disabled children.

Every Life Matters

Let us be a reason to make them feel cared for. Let us give them a better life because child deserves a good future

Towards a healthier Tomorrow

We plan to continuously work for the betterment of the society in all ways that we can, now and in times to come. We consider this initiative, a stepping stone towards this direction.

How It Works

The first phase will run for six months during which Lato Help packs will be placed and made available at all participating retail outlets.

We target to collect over 1 Billion Ugandan Shillings in 6 months and contribute towards the treatments required

Every child is chosen based on the severity of their condition and their economic background to ensure that the neediest child receives your gift first. To establish this, the parents/guardians will be required to fill in a form detailing their financial background, employment history, education qualification and access to medical facilities. UMC Victoria Hospital Uganda, our healthcare partner, and a key stakeholder in this project will be in charge of setting up camps where the above information will be collected. A committee of Doctors will select the children for the procedure and send its recommendation list to the governing committee for approval.

UMC Hospital has graciously agreed to carry out the treatments at a minimal cost charging only for the use of the theatre, drugs, and consumables including rehabilitation aids and anything that is outsourced without any margin added. The rest i.e. doctors’ consultation, procedure costs, nursing and bed fee will all be complimentary.
Your contribution will go a long way in helping children realize their dreams.

The Selection Process

  • 1. Medical Camp

    Medical camps will be set up across Uganda where parents/guardians can bring their children (below the age of 18 years) for a free consultation and registration for the project.

  • 2. Doctors Committee

    Based on the information provided, the committee selects the children who are the most in need of treatment and sends the list to the governing committee for approval.

  • 3. The Governing Committee

    The list is discussed and approved based on an unbiased unanimous selection process by the Governing Committee.

  • 5. The Treatment

    All selected children are referred to the UMC Victoria Hospital where they undergo any necessary procurement and treatment.

  • 6. Clinical follow up

    All children will receive post-operative follow-ups and rehabilitation procedures to monitor the progress of the children both at home and the hospital
