We thank everyone who has donated towards " Emergency Ambulance for Whisper's Hospital project." It is an honor to have you as part of the Whisper team. We have so far raised $171 out of the total goal of $30,000.
We still face a big challenge for not having a Hospital ambulance. This mainly happens especially when there is a need for transportation of dying children who need to be picked up from their homes (deep in the villages) to our Hospital for treatment and also during referrals. Our Hospital car does not provide the necessary environment for emergency procedures which may favour the transportation of these children and even mothers who need urgent surgical procedures.
In the past three months we received so many children who required an ambulance and one of them was a 15 years old boy who was admitted in a very critical state and was diagnosed with Hep B and severe anemia. He was transfused with one unit of blood group 0+ but that was not enough as we ran out of 0+ due to the shortage of availability of blood at the blood bank. The boy's condition deteriorated the next day, Hb reduced and was supported on oxygen because he was desatulating upto 70%.
At this point he could not walk or change the position in bed so he needed a relatively fully equiped means of transport to another facility (an ambulance) to take him to the next district to save his life. fortunately we were able to transport him safely using the Hospital car.
We request for more support to acquire our own Hospital ambulance.
