Happiness after baby is born to a cancer patient

Whisper delivered healthy baby boy at 32 weeks to a HIV positive mother suffering from stage 4 breast cancer, who was in unbelievable pain kept at home, until her breast fallen off, this is when the fighter Amanda Mwanje finally managed to bring the patient to Whisper's Magical Children's Hospital

As soon as we saw Amanda’s Facebook post searching for people to help this suffering lady to deliver the baby, and raising huge amount of money for the hospital bills, I didn’t wait for a second to be here for her patient again, and offered to help deliver the baby for free.

Whisper sent the transport of $55 for the special hire to Amanda to bring the mother right away to the hospital, however on the day of departure next morning, the family stopped the mother from coming here and instead invited the witch doctor, who convinced them it wasn’t a cancer but witchcraft. 

Under incredible pain, the mother was suffering, and it was killing us, but Amanda didn’t give up. She involved authorities to help. In that whole process, the situation went worse and the mother’s right breast fallen off and it was already infested and cleaned by maggots. 

Amanda then rushed the mother to our hospital on Sunday evening 17th of March 2019, where all of our amazing doctors and radiographer came together to assess the unborn baby that could get into distress any moment and die including the mother herself. (Dr John Mundaka, Dr Fadga Fad, Dr Isaac and Dr Sekatawa Wycliffe Sparks and radiographer Sam) heads together and decided to deliver the baby normally by inducing the labor. For sure we are in magical hands of God and it is unbelievable how somebody so sick was capable deliver such a perfect baby! The baby was given a syrup to prevent him from getting HIV and will need to be fed on formula only for at least the first 6 months of his life. Formula that will last for 3 - 5 days will cost $10. Any help to this baby is highly appreciated! 

Thank you to all of our donors of Whisper to continuous support of the charity.  

Our heart is full of happiness.

Amanda Mwanje your rock, as always.

Welove you Whisper doctors! #teamwhisper #helpwhisper #maternity#ugands #thestoryofheartbreakandhope

Whisper has so far worked on 727 mothers

We officially opened the Whisper maternity on 25th of May 2018. We have received a total of 727 mothers who registered for our maternity services. We have a full time professional gynecologist who is also a consultant dealing with women reproductive issues.

We have carried out over 41 deliveries categorised under Normal deliveries, Elective and emergency C-sections. We get a lot of feedback from our patients through our social media sites informing us a bout the impact of our maternity services to the community.

The community appreciates the great work we are doing. So many mothers have suggested that we expand our maternity services to Kampala and other cities in Uganda. So many lives are being saved and we are so grateful to our lovely donors for supporting us to make our dream of reducing the high maternal mortality rate in Jinja a reality.

Whisper has treated 51 burns patients

 In the last 13 months, Whisper has dressed and treated 51 patients with burns. All the 51 patients we received with burns are babies and children not above 13 years of age. 

We spend a lot of money on daily dressing of the wounds and treatment for the long time our burns patients spend on the ward to fully heal. Through the support of our generous donors, we have been able to get medicine and dressing gauze for these young, beautiful children with burns.

Most of the patients received had severe burns of up to 40% burn surface area of which the child is brought to the hospital at the point of death after having tried other unsuccessful treatments from other health centres.

We thank all the kind hearted individuals for the support and guidance towards our *Help Fund a Children's Burn Unit in Uganda Project*. Many lives of these young souls have been saved.
