In the heart of Fort Portal, the Girl Potential Care Center (GPCC) embarked on a transformative mission with its “14 Hugs” initiative. This heartfelt endeavor aimed to provide tangible support to families facing unique challenges, focusing on enhancing the lives of two remarkable girls, Michael Rose and Jocelyne Miracle.
On the 5th of October, the GPCC team conducted insightful visits to the homes of Rose and Miracle.

The initiative garnered tremendous support, enabling GPCC to donate essential items, including wheelchairs, dolls, soap, a playing ball, and a reading book.
Enhancing Health and Well-being: The wheelchairs provided have significantly improved the mobility and overall health of Rose and Miracle.
Spreading Joy: The dolls, playing ball, and reading books brought smiles and excitement, creating a positive impact on the children’s lives.
Supporting Income Generation: By addressing Rose’s mother’s business aspirations, GPCC aims to empower her economically, fostering sustainability.
