Treating Malnourished children at whispers
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.
We established a sickle cell clinic through which more than 2467 patients have so far attended.
An estimated 1546 nutritional patients visit and re admitted are admitted to our nutritional ward annually. This brings close to 7730 nutritional patients treated in the past five years.
In addition, we have established a free TB Clinic and the good news for the start is that we have already registered a total of 64 patients and we widh to provide more assistance to such patients.
We once again thank you for always supporting us. Its through your donations that we have been able to save so many lives.
