Gold Star Insurance, pill one of the companies under the Ruparelia Group of Companies yesterday donated 25 wheel chairs to the physically impaired children at Katalemwa Cheshire Home for Rehabilitation Services (KCH) in Gayaza.

The place was initially set up to provide a home environment to people with incurable sicknesses and the physically disabled.

Over the years the home has expanded and the emphasis changed from long-term residential care for adults to short-term rehabilitation for children with physical disabilities.

Samalie Matovu, the Director Katalemwa said while receiving the donation that Gold Star’s intervention came in handy, especially with an increasing number of admissions of children who need special care.

“We make wheel chairs locally, but the challenge has always been that most parents who come here cannot afford them,” Samalie said, adding that the company’s donation would help in enhancing the children’s mobility.

Katalemwa Cheshire Home has helped rehabilitate and treat over 20,000 kids with various deformities, mental retardation and other bodily challenges.


It has also helped parents of these children to start their own income raising ventures to support their children and families.

Paul Kavuma, the Deputy Managing Director of Goldstar Insurance while handing over the donation advised that the aspect of social responsibility should have little to do with profits but rather corporate entities should focus on conscious giving and gauge what impact it causes in the communities they operate in.
