Challenge

Gift suffered an open wound on her forehead after being involved in a car accident, where she also lost both of her parents. After stabilizing Gift at our hospital (she needed a blood transfusion and malaria treatment) Whisper arranged for plastic surgery in one of the charitable clinics in Uganda, that was recommended to us, however, the plastic surgery was not successful and after 3 surgeries, the surgeons gave up on her.

Solution

Whisper's Chief Medical Officer, Dr Fahad, called the private plastic surgeon Dr Kalanzi who had already and successfully worked on three of our patients. After reviewing Gift, Dr Kalanzi said, said the skin grafting technique that was used was wrong. He said he can correct it, but the correction will cost $1205 (we attached a photo of the quotation)

Long-Term Impact

Here is why we need your help. We cannot let Gift just be and we have full trust in Dr Kalanzi as he had done some wonderful work and with Whisper's aftercare, all patients have fully recovered and now live a normal life. Gift can be one of them. Right now, she is back at our hospital. She can't go to school because of her condition. She cannot go back to her normal life before she is not recovered properly. She already lost her both parents, please help us to give her a gift of life instead.
