Manna Rescue Home


Opened in 2008, Manna Rescue Home provides vital housing and care for vulnerable HIV-positive children in Fort Portal, Western Uganda. With a capacity to accommodate 30 children, the home offers a secure, stable, and loving environment where children can develop to their full potential. It is important to note that we are not an orphanage, but a rescue home, which means that the children go home during school holidays for two weeks at the end of each term with support from Manna Rescue Home. This arrangement helps maintain their connection with any family members who are still alive.


Manna Rescue Home ensures that these children receive comprehensive medical care, access to education, nutritious meals, and psychological support. The dedicated staff works tirelessly to create a nurturing atmosphere, fostering a sense of family and community. This holistic approach helps the children overcome the stigma associated with HIV, build their self-esteem, and develop the skills necessary for a bright future. By addressing both their physical and emotional needs, Manna Rescue Home enables these children to grow into happy and productive members of their community, breaking the cycle of poverty and disease.
