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

Raising 300 for plastic surgery for baby Andrew

Andrew today
Andrew today

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

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. 

Veronika
