Raising 300 for plastic surgery for baby Andrew

This is one year and two months old Andrew, who was admitted in our emergency room after a pot with boiling beans burnt him on the side of his body, being just 6 months old.

Andrew and his mother got Whisper's medical assistance only for the payment of £6 at that time, however the total bill for treating his burns every two days ever since, cost Whisper hundreds of pounds already, howeve the results are simply incredible. This is all possible to our beautiful donors! Thank you very much!!

His mother could otherwise never afford the expensive treatment in other hospitals, and Andrew would have a small chance of surviving.

When Andrew's wound on the arm healed, we discovered that Andrew cannot move with his left arm, so we have taken him for a consultation to the plastic surgeon in Kampala last week. The surgeon said he will need a plastic surgery, to enable his elbow movement. 

This surgery will cost 3,500,000 UGX (£744). Whisper's volunteer Cecilia (a nurse who is currently volunteering at our hospital) had raised half of the money, so Whisper needs to raise another £300 to complete the medical bill.

As soon as the money is raised, we can book the surgery for Andrew.

Andrew will be the third patient Whisper would pay towards the plastic surgery, altogether raising more than £,2762 in the last 9 months towards the skin transplant.

Thank you very much for any contribution you may make towards helping those unfortunate children.

Any financial donation, comments, shares and mention can lead to a great life-changing act for Andrew.

Lots of love

The Jinja Blood Bank became the best in Uganda

Dear friends of Whisper,

Thank you to everyone who donated towards such an important project.

Ever since Jinja Blood bank started to co-operate with Whisper, they have became the No1 blood collection branch in the country.

Whisper continues supporting blood donation drives together with regular twice a week transportation of the blood for safety screening in the laboratory.

Whisper currently employs three of the five original workers, as two of them have been given contract in September. 

Whisper's hospital never misses blood, we can now work on any emergencies without worrying about lack of blood as we are supplied blood on regular basis sometimes twice-three times  a week, as Whisper is now considered as the priority in receiving blood for transfusion.

I need to also say a BIG thank you to Jiri Majer and Adela Kucharcikova, who fundraised over £3000 for this project! 

We don't fail to save a life!

Thank you for every donation made towards this life-saving gesture.

Saving over 3000 patients lives again

Happy Swaib

Dear all Whisper's Friends,

We thank you for the continuous support towards saving lives of the innocent and unfortunate children in Uganda.

Only for the month of September, we treated 158 children with malaria, 20 patients who suffered artificial or severe burns, and 248 children received blood transfusion.

Together since our last report, our doctors have attended to more than 3000 patients, who received free laboratory tests, and medical treatment at only $7. 

In September, we helped 3 families with completely free treatment at our hospital and provided them with our social work services, helping them start up businesses and donating them house items and clothing. Other 8 patients were brought from the rural villages during our rescue outreach mission and provided full medical treatment free of charge. 

One of the great achievement during this time was a successful plastic surgery of our little 4 year old patient Swaib who suffered severe burns on his body in on July 3rd. He has been admitted at our hospital now the 4th months where Whisper is taking care of the healing. This boy would surely die if it was not for your help. 

If you like to get in touch with our organisation, you can do so via our website www.WhisperOrphans.org

Thank you for the support, it means more than you will ever know!
