After 10 years of living in isolation due to stigma and the lack of community-based services, Moussa will now get treatment and support from Ambrose and other professionals at the Organized Useful Rehabilitation Services (OURS) centre for children with disabilities in Mbarara. In addition, Moussa’s mother will receive training and information about how to care for a child with a disability.
