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 over 700 patients both inpatient and outpatient. Malnutrition is one of the common problems that affect most children here in eastern Uganda.
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. most parents come at our hospital as referals by good samaritans and comes when they know whispers is their last hope. Parents come when they cannot afford even to pay $24 for consultation . Your continuous donations help us to support these children with all the examinations and treatment that is 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 during the days of admission as the children get better. We are very grateful for your donations that have made this amazing work possible.
