you can Make a Difference…
no matter where you are in the world.
The most impactful and immediate action you can take is to donate today. Everything counts.
$25 – the amount required to provide full antenatal care to a pregnant woman (consisting of 4 visits over the course of her pregnancy) and a free Maama’s kit (which includes everything she may be required to provide when she shows up to deliver at a health care facility).
$50 - is what it takes to diagnose and treat a family of 5 for malaria. This preventable and yet lethal disease is the #1 killer of children in Uganda and the #1 most common diagnosis seen at NUMEM clinic.
$100 – covers the cost for a new metallic bed frame, a mattress, and an IV drip stand at the NUMEM Health Center in Pader, Uganda. These comprise some of the basic equipment to take care of 1 patient. Currently, the clinic has 12 inpatient beds, but this number is inadequate and it is often the case that children are found receiving treatment while they sleep on blankets on the floor.
$250 - is what it takes to cover the salary for 1 clinical officer for 1 month. The clinical officer is responsible for diagnosing, prescribing treatment, and managing a patient's illness, both in the outpatient and inpatient settings.
