no matter where you are in the world.
The most impactful and immediate action you can take is donate today. Everything counts.
$5 – is what it takes to diagnose a child with malaria and to treat this preventable and yet lethal disease with an overnight stay in the clinic while on a quinine intravenous drip. Malaria is the #1 killer of children in Uganda and the #1 most common diagnosis seen at NUMEM clinic.
$50 - covers the complete cost of all medications used in 1 day at the NUMEM Health Center. The NUMEM Health Center cares for between 25 to 30 patients each and every day.
$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.
