Background of the Institution
Lala’s Children Support Organization was founded in 2018 by a one Ms. Murungi Christine, who chanced on a child with cerebral palsy that had been rejected by his father, abandoned by his mother and left in the care of his aged grandmother that lived in Kawotto then.
This child was always locked in a dark room whenever the grandmother went out to look for food. Touched by this sad story, and with her passion and experience running her school Lala’s Daycare & Inclusive School, Christine sought the intervention of a Peadiatric neurologist, Dr. Byarugaba, who advised her to find therapists that would intervene with a rehabilitate the child. Even before she could put a team of therapists in place, Christine begun receiving information about other children in the community and as they say, “the rest is history”.

Kebirungi Carol Nalongo
Mother of three
When my husband and i first visited Lala's in 2018, there was a community outreach, which included mass awareness and assessment for children with special needs, sickle cell screening, nutrition and general healthcare. Despite the days activities, the Lala's team of therapists spent over an hour talking to us about our children's condition and by the time we left, we felt very convinced that there is hope for our children hence enrolling them.
One of the greatest achievements which Lala's has given us is Jessi's ability to wean from milk (at 5 years) and start taking porridge. Previously anything solid or purrie wouldnt go through his mouth. We believe if it wasn't for the lockdown break, he would be eating hard foodstuffs. They are currently able to dress themselves, toileting and participation in different house activities.
