No matter how good or bad you think life is, wake up each day and be thankful for life. 
Someone somewhere is fighting to survive


Accidents happen

Provide aid for a child's family in crisis living in the slums or remote villages in Africa .

We can't predict emergencies in life.  The Big Hearts Fund raises funds to help families when accidents happen.

Health care is not free in Africa. Invariably those who end up at the emergency room are either turned away or given a spot on the floor where family members are expected to provide care. Many patients persih.

Cases are monitored and monies are distributed by our partners, The African Children's Choir based in Uganda.


ISAAC'S STORY

Isaac Lwanga from ACC Choir 19 was involved in a boda boda (motorcycle) accident. He sustained a compound fracture in the femur (largest bone in the leg), whereby it broke in two places and a shard of bone pierced the skin. He also broke both his wrists. Luckily he sustained no head injuries. 

Isaac was taken to Mulago Hospital where he received primary care. They re-set the bones in his wrists and also plastered his leg . 

The day after his accident we arrived at the hospital to find Isaac on the floor with no mattress. Big Hearts was able to move him to a ward where he receives better care.

Isaac required surgery to set the bones in his leg. He needed metal plates  to support the bone and the shard of bone was removed. 

Durung his lengthy recovery he had to use a wheelchair and needed intensive physical therapy and 24-hour care. 
     
Big Hearts covered UGS3,000,000 (AUD $1326.840) of his medical costs.
