"...that day could have been the end of my life if not for NUMEM to bring an ambulance which took me up to the hospital – everyone else had given up and they were waiting for me to die." - Alimocan Florence, northern Uganda
On April 13, 2015, Florence gave birth to her son at a governmental district Health Centre III. After her delivery, she started to hemorrhage; Florence collapsed and became unconscious. Because of NUMEM's emergency call box system, medical personnel was able to arrange for emergency transport to the nearest hospital, over 60km away. It was with funds and donations supplied to NUMEM that the emergency call box system exists.

$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.
