Meet Naume Grace born in a place called Masanda Musoto in Mbale city.

Grace was born with spina bifida and her mother and father realized this when they saw a swelling on her back, they rushed him to hospital for an operation and in process of the operation the doctors messed up with her waste realizing organs that they joined together, which resulted into uncontrollable releasing of urine and feaces.

Grace’s mother abandoned the girl and she was left in the care of the father who tried on several attempts to look for a solution to the problem grace was facing but all in vain. Later her father was arrested and put into prison and Grace was left in the hands of her elder brother who now acted as the provider and care taker, the brother sent grace to the village market where she got an accident and broke her leg this became so hard for the brother to cater for medical expenses and decided to leave the girl in house for over a month.


The first time we visited Grace she had nothing to eat or even drink for the whole day.
As Elite Youth of Uganda, we took on the responsibilities and advocated for Naume’s treatment and medical expenses, we tried different hospitals like Trewode fistula hospital in Soroti, where we met with doctors who affirmed to us that grace’s situation can not get in place.

we had to only take him to Cure hospital for rehabilitation to be trained on how to drain the wastes out of her body. We did implemented this the following day with the help of Madam Trudy and Madam Margaret’s.

Currently Grace is a happy girl and she has kept on draining her self and she is now a clean girls, plays with her colleagues freely.
