William’s Story

William and his mum were admitted to Mother of Mercy Hospice in Chilanga, near Lusaka in Zambia in February 2016. They were both very sick, William’s mum was in a critical condition. William was malnourished and diagnosed with TB. He was eighteen months old and weighed just 6.5 kg. He had never taken a single step because he was so weak.

William was referred to the Hospice’s outpatient clinic. With the right medical treatment and nutritional supplements he quickly recovered and was discharged home. For the last few months he has been given formula milk. Now weighing 10 kg, he recently started to walk and is getting stronger every day! After a few months his mum was also discharged and is now doing very well.

VisionZambia works with the Mother of Mercy Hospice to care for children and adults with HIV/AIDS, TB & Malaria. Your donation is urgently needed to save lives and give children and adults hope for the future. Supporting the poorest of the poor in one of Africa’s most impoverished countries, the Hospice is a ray of light in the community, and offers the only lifeline to thousands of people every year.

Your donation today could prevent the premature deaths of hundreds like William and his mum and help them to live happy, healthy and productive lives.
