Medication for Shadrach Mugoya

$1,825 of $1,800 goal

Raised by 48 people in 28 months
Dear Friends,
Shadrach Mugoya, the spiritual leader of the Namutumba, Uganda Jewish community, and rabbinical student in Aleph, is very ill.  He is in the Ugandan national hospital in Mulago with Tropical Splenomegaly Syndrome (TSS). This is caused by chronica severe malaria, and is affecting his spleen, liver, and blood cells. He needs to take long term anti malarial medicine, which costs $10 a day. The doctor there says he will need to take it for at least 6 months, so we need to raise at least $1,800. Please give what you can--he is a wonderful person, and his community and his family depend on him. Thank you!

Dear friends, I wanted to let you all know that we met our goal for this campaign, and raised $1825 to cover the cost of Shadrach's anti malaria medicine for 6 months. Since it is not possible to access the money from gofundme directly in Uganda, I sent the first $500 to him 10 days ago, and the rest today. Gofundme will now reimburse me. We are closing this campaign, but if you would like to donate to the Namutumba Jewish community to help with famine alleviation, or to support the seven couples who are getting married this summer there, please send donations to: EZRA UGANDA ASSISTANCE at 11409 Hounds Way, Rockville, MD 20852.
Thank you all!
All the best to all of you,
Fern

Dear friends – Shadrach is doing much better now that he has been on antimalarial medication for a couple of days. He has been discharged from the hospital and doesn't have to go back for a month. Also we are only $153 away from our goal of being able to pay for six months of treatment. You all rock!
Thank you!

Good news friends--we have raised almost $800 so far toward our $1,800 goal. Earlier, I was able to send the first $500 to Shadrach, and he is very happy to say he will be able to start on medication immediately now.
This is something that really makes a difference--not only in Shadrach's life, but in the life of his community as well. Blessings to all!
