10 year old Edwar is deaf and his life has been transformed by the work SignHealth does in Uganda. At the school we support he has learned to communicate with others for the first time in his life, using sign language. He can now play with other children who are just like him, and he’s being educated to equip him for a full life.
Jessie is 22 years old. She was abused physically and emotionally by her partner and became severely depressed.

We supported Jessie for three years, placing her in a refuge and helped her overcome depression.
