One4Another's primary focus is providing life-changing surgeries for children in Uganda who would never be able to afford it without outside help.
Many children in Uganda grow up with debilitating conditions and diseases which lead to a lifetime of suffering and exclusion from their communities. We can provide them with a brighter, happier future!
Surgical care (including all fees from start to finish) that costs between $200 -$1,000, depending on the condition, can significantly shift the path of a child’s life from one of perpetual poverty to a life with the hope of education and eventually the ability to provide for one’s family.
The surgeries and rehabilitations are being coordinated by our team of Ugandan nurses. We've partnered with clinics, hospitals, and local surgeons throughout Uganda but our home base is in the town of Jinja.
(Note: for the majority of patients we cover all costs through private clinics but when we can we partner with subsidized not for profit hospitals and provide transportation, payment for tests, and case management.)
Here are some of the conditions we help to treat:
Osteomyelitis (bone infections)
Fractures & Trauma
Growths & Tumors
Complex Birth Defects
Scroll through the slides below to see how funding is used to significantly improve the lives of these children.
Here's what successful outcomes look like for some of our patients:
With the intense pressures brought on by poverty parents are often unable to pay for transportation to our clinic let alone pay for their child's surgical fees. These kids need someone to advocate for them, help keep their treatment on course, and to fill in the gaps.
