We wanted to report on another two angels who were helped by the incubator, both were suffering from neonatal sepsis followed by hypothermia.
Hypothermia is the condition of having an abnormally low body temperature, typically one that is dangerously low caused by Neonatal Sepsis.
Neonatal Sepsis invasive infection, usually bacterial, occurring during the neonatal period. Signs are multiple, nonspecific, and include diminished spontaneous activity, less vigorous sucking, apnea, bradycardia, temperature instability, respiratory distress, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal distention, jitteriness, seizures, and jaundice.

Our two babies have recovered very fast, being put on a very high quality antibiotics and oxygen.
The mothers only paid £10 in total ($12, or 310 Czech Crown)
We are really grateful for this wonderful machine that is helping our patients heal faster and thank you for the continuous support to Whisper.
Both babies will be discharged home today.
Our children's hospital has become the only hospital in region that parents are thinking about when it comes to an emergency.
Unfortunately neonatal deaths in Uganda are way too common. According to the Ugandan Demographic and Health Survery the number of children dying before one year is 43 per 1,000 live births.
Very many children are delivered in unacceptable conditions in Ugandan health centres and hospitals. Such places are not well equipped, they often miss basic hygiene and equipment that is necessary for a save delivery.
Most of the children born prematurely therefore have small percentage for survival.
Whisper's hospital being one of the best equipped children's health centre in region, we receive number of newborn babies for immediate medical attention.
We have cried for a life-saving incubator and thanks to your generosity, we have achieved to raise full amout of money for it.
Our incubator already helped save 4 babies lives. HOW AMAZING!
It gives us extra more confidence now to receive and attend to the newborn children at our emergency ward.
Attached are some pictures of some of the babies who benefited from it.
Thank you very much for every coin that was given for this wonderful thing!
