Holistic Rehabilitation

The holistic rehabilitation process is divided in two components; Institutionalized Rehabilitation (IR) and Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR). In IR children stay at LRC for three-six months and receive physiotherapy and corrective surgeries in cooperation with Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services in Uganda (CORSU) in Kampala. Education through catch up classes, psychosocial and livelihood support through different empowerment processes are other processes contributing to AFU’s holistic rehabilitation. In CBR children and parents are followed up in their homes and school environment with various activities. AFU’s mandate is to rehabilitate children between the ages of 0-18 years and to offer support to their families in developing their potential to address the underlying causes and challenges of the disability problem.
