Mothers & Children
equivalent in Canadian dollars: $750,000
Mothers and children are among the most vulnerable groups of Uganda’s population. Without proper medical care, the rates of maternal mortality, infant mortality, and serious childhood illness are very high. We invite you to support the future of the Ugandan nation by helping us to continue improving the medical care we give to mothers and their children.
However, Salomon’s tumor, a sarcoma, had already spread to other organs, including his chest wall and cervical lymph nodes. He suffered from chronic diarrhea, and was so sick that doctors were unsure whether he would survive. But he did. As soon as he arrived at Lacor, doctors gave him chemotherapy. In time, all of his tumor localizations disappeared, and he gradually recovered health. One staff member told us: “I can tell you that he recovered very well from the cancer. He is now a healthy kid and has returned to school. He has a sister who loves him and always comes with him. Salomon smiles all the time and he always says that he wants a hug—and some meat!”
Salomon returns to Lacor on a regular basis to receive his HIV drugs and to check if there is any recurrence of the cancer. So far, there has been none; Salomon is doing well.
