Miles Of Smiles Foundation

Activating child friendly services in Greater Masaka Region

Essanyu Lya'baana Project

Play is therapy, it is one of the ways children express their feelings and emotions thus enabling them to acquire timely support. It helps kill boredom during their clinic visits and helps in maintaining clinic appointments since children and young people are made to look forward to their clinic appointments. Miles of Smiles Foundation has been able to support health facilities with play materials in form of board games, dolls, balls, and others to facilitate play during children’s clinics. We have also supported health workers by conducting trainings in provision of child friendly services, providing child friendly accessories for health workers like aprons and clinical coats designed with cartoon characters.

Support us through donating play materials for the health facilities and any child centered health departments in Uganda. So far, we have supported 20 health facilities to provide child and adolescent friendly services.
