We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our esteemed Donors for helping us donate towards our burn unit for children with burns.
Whispers Magical Children Hospital and maternity has treated a very good number of patients in the past three months and 5% are babies rushed here with severe burns. Treating burns is one of the most expensive treatment in hospitals because the materials used for dressing and re- dressing are of single use like stirlized gauze and bandages. Also most of the children with burns end up going for plastic surgeries and Grafting.
Most of the children we receive for burns are rushed in by good samaritans and neighbours for example last month we received a 7 year old girl who burnt almost 75% of her whole body while cooking for her siblings on a local charcoal stove. she was rushed in by her neighbour because the parents were not around. she was admitted in our hospital on zero charges because the good samaritan who brought her could not even pay the 25$ for consultation and admission.She has been admitted for almost a whole month in our hospital free of charge until she got better and discharged as out patient for re-dressing every after two days. Because the burns were too severe and requires grafting, we are in preparation to take that same baby for grafting in another facility on whispers account because the parents cannot afford.
Whispers 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 every Tuesday and Thursday of the week, to be sensitised about different conditions for baby with burns needs extra care and proper hygiene in order to prevent infections.
