We would like to thank you for the continous support towards our Hospital that has helped save many lives of Children and Mothers in Eastern region and Uganda at large.
We as Whisper's Magical Children’s Hospital and Maternity continue to make good use of the available resources we have, to satisfy our patients to our best possible potential. The past three months, we have treated a higher number of neonates as compared to previous months and we are still facing challenges of transporting our children who are in critical situation due to lack of an ambulance.
Many of neonates are brought to our hospital in alot of distress because they come from very far places which would have been saved if we had ambulance and picked them from the very far places where they come from. And we sometimes use motorclyes, personal cars ( no oxygen, blood pressure gauges, tethoscopes, thermometers, medical tapes,flashlights etc...) to tranfer them to the referral hospitals for further management in specialized facilities like carrdiology department whch we do not have at our facility.
Having an ambulance at our hospital will help us have 24/7 response towards our emergence especially for mothers in Labor since we almost receive daily phone calls from Health centres for Dying mothers in Labor. And we usually receive phone calls in the middle of the night and we really find it hard to bring them to our maternity, In so many cases we have to borrow our CEO's personal car to bring them to hospital which is not safe for that critical situation.
For the past three months we have been renting the ambulance from some nearby International Hospital when we have to transfer our patients and this is really costly if we keep renting for each and every patient that requires ambulance assistace. For example last month we had Baby in emergency( Brenda with Heart failure) who stayed in our hospital for almost 3 weeks and we took her to cadiologiest for various tests for almost 5 times.
We have so far raised $1,361 and we have a remaining balance of $28,639 to achieve our ambulance goal.We therefore kindly request for more support towards acquiring our own hospital Ambulance.
