In the last 13 months, Whisper has dressed and treated 51 patients with burns. All the 51 patients we received with burns are babies and children not above 13 years of age.
We spend a lot of money on daily dressing of the wounds and treatment for the long time our burns patients spend on the ward to fully heal. Through the support of our generous donors, we have been able to get medicine and dressing gauze for these young, beautiful children with burns.
Most of the patients received had severe burns of up to 40% burn surface area of which the child is brought to the hospital at the point of death after having tried other unsuccessful treatments from other health centres.
We thank all the kind hearted individuals for the support and guidance towards our *Help Fund a Children's Burn Unit in Uganda Project*. Many lives of these young souls have been saved.
