We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our esteemed donors for the endless support and donation towards our projects especially treating malnourished children in Eastern region and Uganda at large.With the help of your donations, we have been able to give lives back to the malnourished children in uganda.

Malnutrition is one of the common problems that affect most children here in eastern Uganda. This is due to the high poverty levels and we are in the second wave of covid 19 lockdown where inter district lockdown is implimented as parents are not able to work and provide for their families.

Weakening of the immune system and increasing the susceptibility of the body to infections are some of the ways malnutrition affects the health of children. We receive many cases of malnutrition with complications of oedema, Dematorsis, pulmonary tuberculosis.Most of these children require chest x-rays before admission to rule out the possibility of Tuberculosis. However parents cannot afford even to pay for the x-rays.  

A case in point is a mother (Mama Brielle) who read about how we help the malnourished in the region, the mother travelled from a far district (Mbale) to reach out to us since she had moved to almost every hospital she knew about be it private or government but with no change in the baby's health. she contacted us through facebook and got our address on reaching here she got the best services she had never received and within a week her baby had picked up and left happy with the baby looking so healthy. We were able to avail her with the nutritional rehabilition tips, foods and how to feed the baby.

 As you very well know most of the malnourished cases take long  period to get better so they stay longer in wards than other diseases which makes it costly.

For the past three months, whispers has had a total of 117 children in nutrition ward who were all treated free and this involves chest X-rays of each and every patient admitted in our nutrition to rule out PTB  (Pulmonary Tuberculosis) which is costly and we usually send them to another facility to do the chest Xray since we do not have the machine yet at our facility.

The fact that the number of nutritional cases keep increasing in our hospital day in day out, and we are still a small hospital (space wise) we managed to even swap wards with our Annex ward so that the bigger ward is given to nutrition because nutrition cases needs to be in a spacious enough room.

We therefore can not thank you enough for your continuous donations made towards this project. With your help we are committed to making a difference in the lives of children in Eastern region and Uganda at large!

We are so appreciative!

We are very grateful and would like to thank our donors for the generous contributions towards Whisper’s Magical Children’s Hospital that have enabled us to keep open since the hospital was started

 We have had a tremendous impact and many children’s and mothers lives have been saved thanks to your donations.

Whisper continues to offer the best yet quality, honest and affordable healthcare to many children and mother in Uganda

We have registered 12,581 patients in 2019, and 10,862 (despite the COVID-19 lockdown) totaling to 53,759 patients since the hospital first launch, mainly focusing on emergency unit, blood transfusions, malnutrition, sickle cell treatment and maternity. 

Only in 2020, we treated 10,862 patients; out of those were 1526 visits to our maternity and gynaecology department. 

Whisper also organized for free medical services in COVID lockdown in May 2020 and treated 1100 patients completely free of charge, including free C-sections.

We are one of the 4th hospitals in Jinja fully registered and licensed for Blood Transfusion.

We appreciate our dear donors  for making this possible and request you to continue donating to Whisper’s so we can save the many vulnerable children and mothers in Uganda.

We would like to thank our donors for the continuous support towards our malnutrition project. 

Your support really makes a difference in the lives of children in our community.

We receive very many cases of malnutrition at our Hospital. 

In the last three months we received a total of 150 patients both inpatient and outpatient.

Malnutrition is one of the common problems that affect most children here in eastern Uganda. This is due to the high poverty levels and the partial lockdown as parents are not able to work and provide for their families.

Weakening of the immune system and increasing the susceptibility of the body to infections are some of the ways malnutrition affects the health of children. We receive many cases of malnutrition with complications of oedema, pulmonary tuberculosis.

Most of these children require chest x-rays before admission to rule out the possibility of Tuberculosis. However parents cannot afford even to pay for the x-rays. 

Your continuous donations help us to support these children with all the examinations that are required and we are glad they leave with smiles on discharge.

Through you donations, we have been able to rescue severely malnourished children from very poor families in the villages. We have also been able to provide for them food to support the parents as the children get better.

We are very grateful for your donations that have made this amazing work possible.

We would like to thank everyone who has donated towards our malnutrition project. Every month Whisper's Magical Children's Hospital receives a high number of malnourished children who are living under very poor conditions. These children come from very poor families which cannot afford a meal or even a proper roof over their heads.

The living conditions of these families are so unfavourable that is why Whisper's Magical Children's Hospital decided to treat and rehabilitate such children at a free cost. The parents of these malnourished children don't have to hustle looking for money to pay the malnutrition medical bills all thanks to our beloved donors who have made this possible.

In the past three months Whisper's Magical Children's Hospital received 40 malnourished patients who came for nutritional rehabilitation. Among these was a one and a half years old baby girl who was admitted as a referral with severe a cute malnutrition with Odema, skin dermatosis, hypothemia and malaria. The care taker had lost hope and needed reassurance. The child was rehabilitated by our nutritionist, improved greatly and was discharged and given plumpy nut at no cost. The child is now looking much better.

Thank you so much for supporting these children.

Dear Whisper's Supporters,

Thank you once again for continious help to our hospital.

Lock down in Uganda still continues, although some restrictions have been slowly lifted such as private car movement and public transport although with limited number of passengers.

It has been almost 4 months since Whisper's hospital started to treat anaemic and malnourished children free of charge.

Only in May 2020 Whisper treated 11 malnourished children and 100 patients who were anaemic and received blood transfusion.

This again is only possible for the continueous and extra support our hospital keeps receiving from all of you. 

Thank you very much.
