FUNDING BURNS UNIT IN UGANDA

CHILD BURNT WHILE TRYING TO MAKE TEA
CHILD BURNT WHILE TRYING TO MAKE TEA

Along with adult women, children are particularly vulnerable to burns. Burns are the fifth most common cause of non-fatal childhood injuries. While a major risk is improper adult supervision, a considerable number of burn injuries in children result from child maltreatment. There are very many children brought to our hospital due to burns that are usually caused due to negligence of parents and intentional. 

Just three days ago, a baby boy was brought in with severe burns. This young boy was trying to make a cup of tea for himself because his mother had left him hungry and alone. During this process, he poured hot water on himself which severly burned him but fortunately, he is being managed well in our emergency ward and he is greatly improving all thanks to you our lovely donors.

Apart from providing comprehensive care and treatment for burn survivors, Whisper's Magical Children's Hospital and Maternity has over the years shared its experience through training and capacity building with our nurses and doctors, with the goal of elevating the standard of burn treatment and offer burn survivors the best care possible.

We thank you so much for supporting us and for always donating to this project. So many lives are being saved because of you.

With your help, we have managed to raise $23,206 out of $35,000 and we are left with $11,794 and we believe with your help, we will be able to hit our target.

We would also take this opportunity to wish you a happy new year come 2024!
