Dear Friends and Family, I have something to make you proud of 2016; I made you one of the best Baby Incubators (Neonatal Intensive Care Units) in the world; Yes friend, I just said in the world.
It was aired on UBC Tv in News room two days back, UBC choose me as Best Character of the month, this is the News Byte video.
The Ugandan Made Machine can Monitor the baby’s heart, lungs, Oxygen in blood (SP02) automated reactor; with hundreds of features. this machine was built with 188 sensors for the well-being of the premature baby with over 2 kilometers of wire.
I was shocked when I learnt from UNICEF statistics that 42000 premature babies die every year due to luck of baby incubators which could help save their lives.
I never built this machine for profit, I built it to save lives; I engineered it to help my brothers and sisters have a chance of seeing their babies grow up; but most of all, I engineered it to give these young citizens a chance to live and serve their country with Pride and Victory, that young baby in this machine could be a President, could be the best doctor, could be a scientist, could be a close one. I Just never engineered it, but I engineered it with accuracy!
All it will cost mothers and fathers is a smile!
This machine is ready for mass production; by now we could have deployed about 2000 units saving over 30000 preemies (Premature babies) in Uganda, however President called me to work out a game plan in formal writing and I was blocked by someone in his office who thinks we are politicians seeking money. Some of us are here to serve our country, We are not so rich, neither are we so poor; She wanted us to kneel to save lives, we knelt, but she still showed us that she doesn't care about those dying babies and when she is a mother. Regardless to some mean person in President's office, out of my pocket, I will support Ugandans using my best skills to save their lives; So Help Me God!I have won two awards, the first Best African Scientist 2013-2014, the second I won 3 weeks back, from Serena hotel, This Baby incubator delivered me to my latest award as Uganda's Best innovation (Exhibitor) at the event
