Thanks to two generous donors from New Jersey and two Ugandan donors, KIDA’s doctors are now equipped to do general anesthesia in emergency cases! Dr. Charles Irumba states, “We thank Friends of Ruwenzori and KIDA’s Director for the support that helps us offer safe operations to the general public and practice our skills fully without limitations. The operations we had suspended due to unsafe anesthesia are now being performed with more confidence that our patients will make it through.”
Recently a boy of 9 years with acute appendicitis needed an emergency appendectomy. He was successfully operated on at KIDA Hospital and recovered well. Without the instrument, he would have had to be transferred to Fort Portal Hospital in a poor state of health and might not have survived the long trip.
