Sam has had his surgery

Four-year-old Sam is now back home following successful surgery to correct an obstruction of his bladder that could have damaged his kidneys and caused urinary tract infections. Before he had his surgery four-year-old Sam wasn’t able to walk properly and was off his food. There was very little healthcare where they live and the local clinic couldn’t do anything but refer him to the main hospital in Kampala that Sam’s family couldn’t afford to reach.

Thanks to Anna we’ve were able to cover the costs of Sam’s operation. Not only has Sam made a great recovery but by funding his operation his mum has avoided getting into debt and further poverty.

Sam’s mum said: "͞This is what we have longed for, previously and specifically last year. Thank you very for honoring your promise and for doing it free of charge, this is such a rare opportunity in our community and many would yearn for it but with no chance like the one I have got. I think I will sleep dreaming for this luck.͟"

This is Dr Dan shortly after Sam’s surgery.

31 May

Fundraising goal is reached

Anna crossed the the finishing line of her final marathon in her home town of Wendover on Tuesday 31st May. Covering over 800 miles Anna ran a marathon everyday throughout May with many ’adventures’ along the way including falling into the Grand Union Canal, running for almost seven hours in pouring rain and dealing with extreme heat on the first weekend.

Sam’s operation will cost £338 and he is one of many patient who will benefit from Anna’s amazing fundraising efforts. Any remaining funds will go to our Universal Fund that covers the cost of emergency operations or tops up others that have almost reached their fundraising goal.
