UBUNTU | Fundraising for medical treatment.
Thank you all who have so far supported my fundraising call.
Justus Weijagye are my names.I live in Uganda
On 26th September last year, I was involved in a road traffic accident (RTA).
It left me with a fracture of the left knee joint, some deep wounds and minor injuries on other parts of the body especially the limbs.
As of now I have partially recovered after multiple treatments and of course involved personal expenses given the nature of the health system in our country where much of the medical care is financed by self and not government and I am in no health insurance scheme.
At the moment I need some operation on the left knee to remove foreign bodies and re-handling of the fracture.
I am a medical worker by profession, a radiographer. I am also an entrepreneur and a human rights activist as well apart from being a mere member of the working class.
In my life I have done much for self improvement and well being and as well being of others both near me and from far.
I have donated blood, provided food and clothing materials to the very needy.
I have helped many members of the working class to organize themselves and secure their rights at work and out of work.
Provided free accommodation, food and drinks to many travelers traveling at very minimum costs an those that become ill or sick across the way.
I have helped many members of the working class to get skills especially in photography, income generating projects, computer applications and many others.
As a medical worker I have provided voluntary services to those who cannot afford to pay for them and given free medical advice to many ignorant and ill people.
I have paid school fees for some needy students and orphans as well as struggled and got education sponsorship for others to mention but a few.
I am therefore calling for humanitarian support to regain my health by supporting and contributing to my medical bills.
I need USD 800 to clear the already remaining unpaid bills and also USD 1200 to move to the national referral hospital some 400km from where I live and get the operation and treatment I need as well as related expenses such as meals, drinks, nursing care etc.
This totals to USD 2000.
I have so far raised USD 1002 as follows:
Funds from previous campaign (UBUNTU) USD 622
(705.00: Amount raised by credit card
-$35.25: Indiegogo platform fee (5.0%)
-$22.65: Payment processing fee (3.0% + $0.30 USD)
-$25.00: Non-U.S. wire fee
=$622.10: Net amount disbursed to your bank account on Thu Feb 02.)
Funds locally raised from relatives, friends and well wishers: USD 380
Total funds still required = USD 2000-1002 = USD 998
Plus Indiegogo platform fees of 5% and
Payment processing fees of 3% totals to 8% more of 998 = USD 1078
Plus USD 25 fee for Non US wire fees ,TOTALS to USD 1103
*The word UBUNTU is a Bantu speaking language word that means being humane.
