Whisper‘s new Magical Children's Hospital in Jinja, Uganda supports and provides essential medical attention for children up to age of 13 from some of the poorest areas of the country, often with serious conditions.
A grant of £5000 buys essential medicines, medical supplies and often lifesaving drugs.
Update - Grant Provided by One Kind Act 21 June 2019
A grant of £1000 was made as a result of fund-raising efforts by OKA Supporter, Amrisha Prashar, at a recent Marathon event (see EVENTS page for details) to buy much-needed medication and drugs to treat 400+ patients.
Update - Grant Provided by One Kind Act 8th January 2017
A grant of £5000 was made to provide medical attention and drugs to children at the hospital.
Treating 30-40 children daily, Whisper has facilities for a parent to stay with their sick child at the 20-bed hospital. Children are brought here from up to 4 hours drive away and no one is turned away. Outpatients are encouraged to pay a nominal amount of £6 but are still treated if they cannot afford this. They often deal with serious conditions like TB, HIV, severe malaria and malnutrition.
Whisper’s hospital saves so many lives because of the high quality of care. Uganda has good (if scarce) medical staff but are routinely let down by poor support services and standards of care. For example, power cuts are common and in government hospitals, small children on oxygen routinely die when the power fails. Whisper’s inpatient mortality rate has been very low by local standards, with just 5 unavoidable deaths since the hospital opened
