Let's be the first one to help!
By sharing more people will know about the project, and it will be more likely to be supported.
My name is Birungi Gillian and I'm from Kampala, Uganda!
I'm running this project because I want to raise some funds to pay the treatment of some patients of Osteomyelitis!
Katalmwa Cheshire Home is a NGO where they are trying to help people with disabilities.
There are some patientes who are suffering what is called as Osteomyelitis, that is a bone infection, a serious disease. Most of the patientes eventually need surgery, and most of them can't afford the expenses.
Currently, there are 8 patientes here who really need to go under surgery as soon as possible. I've helped 2 already, but I need some help to be able to help the other 6.
My brother is a Osteomyelitis patience, and after he went under surgery he started rehabilitation at Katalmwa Cheshire Home, a couple of years ago.
Since then, I visit the place very frequently and do volunteer job, sharing my nurse knowledge to help people there.
Thanks to my volunteering activities I got really close with some of the patientes. Many of them hasn't family, and I really want to help them feel comfortable and loved.
I also want to financially support those patientes, but it's difficult o collect the amount they need for surgery, treatment and rehabilitation expenses.
I'm working as a nurse in a regular clinic.
In order to help the other 6 patientes I would need to collect $1,200 that is almost impossible for me, with my salary. As I explained, I managed to help 2 so I almost ran out of savings.
Currently, I just have $100, but I would like to ask you for some more help to collect the rest.
With $1,100 I will be able to help 6 more Osteomyelitis patientes to get the treatment they need!
Everything I collect with this project will be use for the medical treatment of those patientes. In case I success I will be able to pay the full treatment and surgery for 6 more people!
I will have to move to another district on September due to work, so I would really love to collect the amount before then, to be able to help the patientes before leaving.
I would be really grateful if you can support them to get back normal eventhough if it's a small amount. If I cannot meet the target fund, I will keep continue supporting them as I always do even though it takes more time!
