Whisper has transfused over 600 anemic patients

This project was established to continuously organise blood donation sessions, safe blood processing and screening. In the past three months our Hospital has transfused blood to 615 anemic patients. This also comes with an increment in the total number of sickle cell and malaria patients making it to 832 patients combined in the previous three months.

There are days when we face the problem of scarcity of blood within the Eastern region of Uganda and the only solution is to organise blood donation sessions inorder to save the lives of the anemic children and adults. These sessions are sometimes conducted outside our Hospital and the blood obtained is later sent to Nakasero blood bank in Kampala for screening and processing.

Basing on our Hospital findings, the shortage for blood in the Eastern region is mainly caused by severe malaria and sickle cell disease within the region. This mainly happens during the rainy seasons whereby there is plenty of thick bush growing and alot of stagnant water which acts as a breeding ground for Anopheles mosquitoes. Once malaria is too much in the region, the number of blood transfusion increases causing scarcity in the blood supply to various Hospitals in Jinja.

Your funding towards this project has enebled us to obtain blood which has saved so many anemic patients with no hope of getting blood anywhere.

Thank you so much.
