Whisper admitted 25 malnourished patients in June

This has been a very busy month, we have treated 890patients.

Drugs still occupy the highest amount of money for our general expenses at the hospital.

We spent £7,579 on drugs and laboratory supplies.

In June we still treated many patients who come to us from different parts of Uganda regardless of whether they have money or not.

We always give them 1st class treatment because we aim at saving the many lives of Ugandan children so that we give them hope for a better life.

The number of burns patients has really reduced compared to the number we had last month. For the 4 patients we received in June, 2 were discharged and went home when all wounds had healed and left the hospital with smiles on their faces. 


We have had quite a number of malnourished patients this month totaling to 25 patients, and this has been because of poor feeding due to the high rate of poverty since most of the malnourished children we receive are from the deep rural parts of Uganda where there are high rates of poverty. Our patients spend a minimum of 3 weeks at the hospital. And the cost of rehabilitating these children is really high. Of course, you can always donate to the malnourished vulnerable children via this wonderful fundraising platform.

The number of anemic patients has always been high especially in the eastern region of Uganda. We have managed to transfuse blood to 239 patients in the month of June. The high rate of anemia is especially due to malaria and sickle cell disease.   

We thank everyone who has contributed to Whisper as a charity organisation.

Swaibu is healed after 11 months of treatment

For those who remember, Swaibu was admitted at our hospital on the 4th of July 2017 after falling into a cooking oil and severly burning the back of his head, his arms and shoulders.

Swaibu, his younger sibling and their mother came to us from the main hospital in Jinja after intense pain that Swaibu was experiencing.

Thanks to generous Whisper's volunteers, we have managed to raise funds for a plastic surgery, that went successful, however Swaibu's aftercare has taken several months.

Swaibu was discharged from our hospital in December 2017, after almost 6 months, then continued coming every second day to change his dressings.

Today, almost a year after, his wounds are almost healed and he is so happy and smilling all the time.

Whisper still recieves monthly circa 7 patients who suffer from severe burns, therefore thank you for supporting Whisper.

We are still making a great difference

Dear friends,

We have some great report for you, since we've started to raise funds to help Ugandan people donate life-saving blood, our hospital never misses blood. The word spread around and now we are helping hundreds of children, thanks to people like you who help us to fund this amazing cause. In the last 60 days, we have transfused blood to 165 patients.

Over 224 blood units were transfused to our sick children located in different wards the months of March and April.

We get so many anaemic patients almost everyday who need blood transfusion.

Today, we also received a visit from the members of Red Cross Uganda who thanked us for the support, and said they no longer have any issues with the supply of blood. This is how a great impact our involvement has on our community.

Please continue supporting Whisper!
