Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. Wherever there is a Human in need, there is an opportunity for kindness and to make a difference (Kevin Heath). Unexpected kindness is the most underrated agent of human change. (Bob Kerry). Do things for people not because of who they are or of what they do in return but because of who you are (Harold S Kushner)
On 30th Aug 2018, HTP took an initiative to fundraise for a toddler who was born with 4 holes in the heart. With the help of Ugandan Media, Bukedde FM, NBS TV, The New Vision and some religious leaders, Baby Konde who needed over $20,000 to travel to India for Heart operation made it. He was successfully operated and today Konde is alive and kicking because of generous contributions of people like you.
Tonight we come back to you for assistance in purchase of oxygen concentrator machine for Nakanjako Margaret, 32 year old who has been under care of Kiruddu National Referral Hospital.
She was admitted 2 months ago with h/o on and off dry cough, progressively worsening difficulty in breathing and general body weakness. On hospitalisation she was found that she has lung disease on chest x ray and CT scan on the chest. In Brief she has post TB lung disease.
According to the letter signed by Dr. Worodria William (MBchB,Mmed,Phd,Msc) Margaret needs long term oxygen therapy at home at this stage to improve her life because she is currently dependent on oxygen unable to carry out activities of daily living without oxygen support. She will be discharged at home to survive on this
HTP appeals to kindhearted people to make a cash contribution to help her family procure a portable oxygen concentrator or donate one in kind. This is likely to help rebuild her lungs and facilitate her to be discharged from hospital as noted in hospital letter attached.
The verified cost of the machine is UGX 4.5M roughly USD$1200
Mobile Money Contributions can be sent to her directly on +256773119429
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted ( Aesop). You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
