FIVE CHILDREN HEALED FROM BURNS INJURIES

Whisper's Magical Children's Hospital treated five children with burns in the past three months. We have greatly helped these children and the community in many aspects including providing a clean and safe environment for their healing especially in relation to the materials used for wound dressing for example new crape bandages, free sterile gauze among others. Some of these materials are reusable in other health centres where some of our patients are first admited before coming to our Hospital. This exposes these children to infections.

Whisper also helps these children and the community through impacting knowledge in order to create awareness about how to prevent injuries caused by burns. This is done especially at the Hospital where by all the caretakers are gathered in small meetings to be sensitised about different conditions.

Above all, Whisper offers and provides these children with the most up to date medical care in the process of treatment and management of these injuries. We have excellent staff with knowledge on management of burns. This is most evidenced by the many number of burns patients we treat and fully recover inluding one of the patients who was treated last month, a 4 year old girl who sustained third degree burns of 36 surface area. She sustained the injuries one week prior to admission at Whisper and she was being managed from a certain health centre. She was poorly managed receiving only IV treatment without dressing. The wounds became very septic and the child was not improving. The mother was told about Whisper and when she brought the child she was managed excellently and within a week's time the child was discharged.

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