‘When I was hungry you gave me something to eat,
when I was thirsty you gave me something to drink…’
Hospital patients need an attendant, usually family members, who provide them with food, water and comfort. It is not customary for a hospital to provide food and water to patients in Uganda. For those without family able to act as an attendant there is a severe risk of hunger and thirst and premature death.
Our 25:35 project has been established to give destitute patients food and water each day and the comfort of knowing someone is taking care of them and can listen to their worries.
