Therefore, a donation of £1 a week will help save the life of 52 children a year, and if 10 people join we will be able to raise £520 a year which will help us to provide malarial treatment to 5,200 children a year. 2.2; A donation of £1 can buy a mosquito net and three children could sleep under one mosquito net. Therefore, a donation of £1 will prevent three children from catching malaria and a donation of £52 per year will prevent 156 children from catching malaria. And if 10 people join we can raise £520 a year and therefore we will be able to prevent 1560 children from catching malaria. 2.3; We could use £5,000 to buy a second-hand ambulance and ship it to the hospital. The ambulance would save many lives because patients with critical conditions can be transported quickly to the hospital. 2.4; £1 a week will help us raise £52,000 a year if 1000 people join and this will help us to upgrade the Marjorie Moxon Maternity unit to a hospital. This will help over 400,000 people to access quality essential treatment. 2.5; £1 a week donation will help us to reduce maternally and infant mortality which is still a challenge in Uganda and especially in rural areas where poor health infrastructure and lack of medical equipment and supplies result in inadequate healthcare services to the needy rural population. 2.6; Uganda population census 2014 recorded infant mortality rate under five of 53 children per 1000 live births and under-five mortality rates of 80 per 1000 births. The above has been caused partly by shortages and limited healthcare facilities which deprive women of the opportunity to safely deliver and £1 a week donation will help us reduce these mortality rates. Thank you for taking this challenge of building a hospital with £1 a week.
