Whisper's Magical Children's Hospital is considered one of the best Hospitals in Jinja that treat burns. Basing on the findings at our Hospital, children under five years of age are greatly affected by burns. The community benefits from our hospital through our dedicated support towards the children who have sustained burns.
Some of the burns patients are treated for free because of the economic situations at their homes whereby the caretakers cannot afford the burns treatment bills at any hospital whereas a fews patients are charged some little money for the daily dressing which cannot even be compared to the costs incured during the treatment of burns.
We also impact the community through taking the children who have sustained complications due to burns for further management. This sometimes involves fundraising for plastic surgeries, skin grafting among others. In a month we receive around five children affected by burns and most of these burns are very severe but we go the extra mile to save the children's lives.
Some of the major causes of burns among children of below five years is economic status. Most of children come from deep in the villages where poverty is excess. Families live in small single roomed houses and thats where they cook from making it easier for the children to get burns accidents while playing.
