Dear all of our great Whisper friends,

It is this time again, when we would like to say thank you for every financial donation towards our burn unit.

In the last 50 days, Whisper received 12 children who suffered horrific burns, mainly caused by boiling water or boiling food (its either porridge or beans).

This happens in Uganda very often, as women cook on the charcoal stove on the ground, therefore many toddlers trip over, or spill it them as they try to hold onto something.

It is so sad that many parents and children still don't reach Whisper, and many end up suffering since treatment of those wounds is not easy and it requires precious hygiene and regular re-dressing. 

At Whisper, we treat the children who come as an emergency with an enormous success, thanks to the funding we receive from your financial donations.

Swabu, a 4-year old patient who came to Whisper as an emergency in July 2017, is still undergoing regular re-dressing most especially of his back part - where he has his plastic surgery done. He has been discharged just 2 weeks ago, and Whisper helps his mum with the transport to reach our hospital regularly for checks up and re-dressing.

Our social workers are scheduled to travel to his home this week, to make an assessment and reports about his well-being at home.

So again, thank you very much for your donations to our charity. Without you, baby like Swaib would not have been here today!

60% of our admissions are Sickle cell patients

Dear all of our Whisper friends and supporters,

Here we are, saying thank you very much for everything you do to make the charity prosper more and more in regards to blood transfusions at our children's hospital in Uganda.

We continue supporting some of the most important people, Whisper's hospital needs to help save lives.

Whisper continues employing three staff members that give a hand in blood donation collection, blood screening processes and safe blood distribution. We also help transport the donated blood for safe screening. 

Whisper's transfuse from about 80 - 150 children every month. Most of our admissions are children born with Sickle Cell Disease - one of the most dangerous, horrific and painful diseases a human can be born with. 

It results in an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin (haemoglobin S) found in red blood cells. Children keep suffering wtih anaemia, swelling in the hands, feet and belly, bacterial infections and stroke.

We witness children going through a horrific pain, that completely breaks our hearts to see. Therefore more so we appreciate the financial help given to support this life-saving meaningful project!

Please continue supporting Whisper and the charity it is doing. It is crucial, so necessary and so important!

Thank you very much!

Happy New Year to you all!

We are very delighted for the amazing support our charity gets thanks to you and GlobalGiving!

We are happy to say that last month we received a bonus £1000 donation from the GlobalGiving End Of the Year Challenge as we have reached the required fundraising target! The £1000 bonus will be dedicated to our burn unit as in December only we attended and treated 5 children with severe burns. This is just so wonderful and it will really help us! 

In December, we have given 85 units of blood transfusion and saved lives to more than 85 children who would have otherwise died! Amazing again so thank you!

However accountabilty for medicine expenditure and laboratory was £8500, but that also means that each child’s life was saved for £7,50. Unbelievable figures in all ways.. therefore we do appreciate any amount of donation towards this life-saving and so needed project! Without you, these kids would die! Please continue supporting us and spread the word!

On behalf of our beneficiaries, thank you very much
