We hope you all had a great summer!
Whisper treated only three new burn cases in August, which seems better to previous months, although it makes us worried how many children got burnt last month who didn't know about our hospital, or could not afford it.
We treat each burnt child at $12 per person, that includes the change of a dressing every two days for several weeks, together with admission and daily food and medicine.
We still have many patients who attend their change of dressing regurarly, some of them come to us for regular reviews for more than 6 months just to make sure every thing is healing well.
We really appreciate your support and every donation given to Whisper.
Dear Whisper’s friends,
here we are again thanking you for supporting Whisper.
Only in the month of June we have given 249 children blood transfusion. That is 249 Children’s lives saved!
On average we receive 60-80 units of blood every week from the Jinja Blood Bank.
We still support and help facilitate their transport to Nakasero (cca 83km from Jinja) 2x a week for blood screening and we alsp employ their three blood technicians, as well as provide their lunch.
Please continue supporting this extremely important work of the blood bank in Jinja who organize blood donations camps 6 days a week across our region.
Our supports doesn’t help only save lives of the children at Whisper, but it also helps provide blood to many other hospitals in the Busoga region.
We and the whole of the Jinja district really appreciate everyone’s financial help.
This is just to let everyone who supported and still supports this project know, that our team is excellent, and we get only positive feedback on our gynaecogical and maternity services, so it really makes me very happy!
Our obstetrician Dr Mundaka is not just very professional but he is also a very good leader. He took the maternity department onto his hands and he really cares about it.
We all care about it as this one is the only self-sustainable income generating project and we all hope that in the future, it can help us fund more than just it’s own activities.
As much as it is an income generating project, all of our female employees and some of our beneficiaries get services free of charge - in case they need it.
Our prices and costs are still very affordable and during a full child delivery each mother is required to pay one off £105, which does really help our funding, but they still get all medicine (if needed) and complimentary three meals a day (for mother and her carer), there is also free water and a WiFi.
We have 24 hour doctors and midwives available and Anastetical officers in case of any surgical emergency.
We operate only for about three months, but we already have 40 antenatal appointments where all of them booked for delivery at our hospital.
We have delivered 10 babies normally and 5 other by C-section (2 of them as an emergency c-section).
We have also had 2 obstetric surgeries
All babies are being treated and attended to free of charge after delivery and all post natal appointment are free too.
We also have an amazing hearing test machine as the only one in Uganda, and we test each newborn baby for its hearing abilities.
I thank to every donor who helped us make this happen. The maternity project gives Whisper a big hope for the future and we absolutely love every bit of it.
