Our Income and Expenditure in 2018
All our Annual Reports
Why are parents asked to contribute?
In Swahili, the word for “free of charge” is the same as the word for “worthless”. We expect that parents or caregivers of the patients themselves make some contribution to the care that we give. It brings a sense of ownership which changes the way the patient is perceived and received in the community. The amount we ask for is about 2% to 5% of the total cost of the surgical and rehabilitative care. We aim to treat children, so we do not let it be a barrier to treatment, but we do encourage the contribution. The average cost of treatment is USD$850. The average family contribution is USD$25. The $825 balance is funded by donors and grants.
“The most meaningful contribution I received was six eggs from a mama who had nothing else,” Sarah Rejman, Director
