Funds raised via Global Giving had helped to purchase safe birthing kits and ship them to Uganda.
Thanks to you first Mama Kits were successfully distributed among expectant mothers in Wakiso and Kampala districts at Kawaala Health Centre IV and Wakiso Health Centre IV. Birthing kits were given directly to pregnant mothers. Women and their babies will now be given the chance of a cleaner, safer birth.
While the government tries to provide free Mama Kits, it cannot meet the growing demand for expectant mothers. Distribution gave us a chance to meet pregnant women and talkt to them about the importance of safe birthgiving, importance of good hygiene and newborn care.
The project ‘Safe childbirth in rural Uganda” will promote health delivery systems, optimise access to safe birth and neonatal care in rural and semi-urban settings, and will provide safe, comprehensive and simple life saving solutions.
Thank everyone who has supported our project. Together we are making a real difference!
