Coronavirus update

The hospital is still open, with some staff living temporarily at the hospital to avoid Uganda's travel ban. Uganda's lockdown is severe and most other medical facilities in the area are likely to be effectively closed. We have arranged a fleet of cars to bring emergency cases to the hospital during the travel ban. Please donate if you can, to help Whisper's patients through this difficult time.
