I appeal to you help us in raising money for building children hospital in Uganda. Many children are dying of malaria, measles, diarrhea, HIV/Aids, worms, respiratory infections and yet they are all treatable Many children have died in mothers arms on their way looking for childrens hospital. There are two children hospitals in Uganda. Uganda has a population of 32 million people and half of the population are children, this number is too small.
In Uganda, 40% of the population is living in absolute poverty, unfortunately they are the same people who are always sick and die for obvious reasons, and yet very unproductive at the same time.
However, better health promotes economic growth.
High incidents of diseases forces the community to spend disproportionate sums of money in health care, starving other critical areas. Sickness e.g. malaria and HIV/AIDS obviously reduce productivity
building children hospital,
distribute at least 300,000 mosquito nets per year,
increase awareness and sensitization,
involve international community in building hospital,
link with other international medical hospitals,
look for volunteers to run key projects,
Infant mortality rate is 97/1000 live birth,
Birth Child mortality rate 143/1000 live birth,
In Uganda 1 out six children born die before 5 years of age,
and Uganda is one of countries with high child mortality rate,
When infant mortality rate is high, parents tend to have more children as they do not expect all children to survive.
By building children hospital and creating more awareness infant/ child mortality rate will reduce increasing productivity and economic recovery to families .
