This is Collin.
He was noticed sitting outside Suubi Medical Centre, quietly, one afternoon while we were in Uganda.
One of our tour group went to talk to him to see why he wasn’t in school. He told us he felt ill and had been sent home. His parents were both in different towns and his grandmother who was caring for him, had no money for medicines if he needed them… so he was just waiting around in-case he became more ill and needed help.
He was taken in to see our nurse Brian. After blood tests it was found he had malaria.
He had no money for medications so we paid for them. It only costs £1.26 for the medications but if you don’t have that money, its a killer disease!
Collin has made a full recovery now, but we need to make sure we have the medications available for people who cannot afford to pay.
Can you spare the price of a takeaway coffee a month to help people in the same situation as Collin please.
Maybe just £3 a month?
If so, please set up a recurring donation using this link.
