The trustees of Kagando write:
On our recent visit to Kagando, we visited the neonatal and paediatric wards several times. They were busy, although not as full as sometimes. It is the dry season so there is less malaria around, but there were cases of pneumonia, diarrhoea, burns, children with heart problems, and one who had fallen out of a tree. On NICU there were premature babies with jaundice and some who had breathing problems; this is not a comprehensive list but gives you examples of reasons for admission.
The community and the hospital appreciate the C100 subsidy enormously, and are very concerned that it should continue. Dr Mary, who has been the paediatrician here for several years, has been moved to Bwera hospital by the government. A specialist paediatrician visits on a part time basis, two days a week, and the hospital is looking for a fulltime paediatrician.
