Read this Newsflash as a Webpage

In the last Newsflash, we reported that there were severe shortages of chemotherapy drugs for the treatment of Burkitt lymphoma at St Mary’s Hospital Lacor in northern Uganda. Since our last report, we have been informed that the situation has started to improve: drugs are beginning to arrive in Lacor and children are again receiving therapy. This is thanks to the extraordinary dedication and tireless efforts of the staff at St Mary’s towards obtaining drug supplies. A more permanent solution for drug purchasing and delivery is being sought for non-governmental hospitals such as St Mary’s, but this will doubtless entail increased expenditure. Please consider making as big a donation as possible in this holiday season so that children in Uganda with this disease can receive the treatment they need and parents are spared the pain and devastation of losing a beloved child.

Thank you very much for your generous support.
