Dr Waddell's long career and extensive work, predominantly in opthalmology, was recognised at Uganda's 61st Independence Day celebrations on 9 October 2023.

The Uganda Independence Medals are awarded by President Museveni to individuals in recognition of their outstanding services and loyalty to the country since independence. 

Dr Waddell is now celebrating the start of his 60th year in the country, having originally been commissioned in 1964 as a missionary by the African Inland Mission to Congo, but ending up in Uganda due to the civil war. He has dedicated his life to delivering life-changing eye surgery to patients in Africa.
