TESTIMONY FROM ISAAC

My name is Isaac, a former student of Mayanja Memorial Medical Training Institute and one of the beneficiaries of Global Giving scholarship scheme in 2011 through Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation. I take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to Global Giving for supporting me during my course of study.

I had a challenge with payment of tuition fee and I was one of the students who were almost failing to complete the course. My parents were unable to raise the whole amount required for tuition fee but when Global Giving gave me a scholarship they were relieved on the burden. But when Global Giving came in I managed to complete the course in May 2011. I am now employed as an Enrolled Nurse at Ntuusi Health Center level IV under the Local Government of Ssembabule District in Southern Uganda (shded on the map below).

 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sembabule_District)

The Health Center serves a catchment area of about 100,000 people. I am now able to contribute towards the development of my community, district and country through offering patient care and participating in public health activities.

I acknowledge the services of Global Giving towards supporting young Ugandans to attain certification in Nursing. Any support offered to other students is highly appreciated.

The Global Giving East Africa Field Officer paid a visit to Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation (MMHF) on Friday May 15, 2015. Mr Kurz was presented with a brief of the Foundation activities. With funding from Global Giving 29 students have been supported. Twenty eight (28) have already got certification in nursing and are working in different parts of the country. One student is still persuing her program and is due to complete her course in December. Mr Kurz had the opportunity to meet the one student still at the Training Institute and one of those who completed his program in nursing. The pre-service student expressed her thanks to Global Giving for the support. The nurse who Kelly met at his place of work (Regional Eye Center) was very grateful for Global Giving support that enabled him to attain a certificate in nursing. He is now the sole financial support for his entire extended family. He has plans to further her studies in nursing. Thanks to the Global Giving family for all the support.

One mother assisted to have safe delivery

This report covers the period of November 2014 to January 2015. During this period 65 women were assisted to deliver in the maternity ward of Mayanja Memorial Hospital in Mbarara Uganda. Twenty six mothers delivered by caesarean section (operative delivery) while thirty nine had normal vaginal deliveries. The newborns of these deliveries were in good health at the time of discharge. Funds from Global Giving channelled through Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation were used to pay hospital charges for one of the mothers who had a caesarean delivery but did not have the money to pay for the operation.  Mayanja Memorial Hospital also subsidised the charges for three mothers who had operative deliveries and one mother with a normal delivery. Ensuring safe delivery to rural Ugandan women is still a challenge due to limited resources. The loss of a mother due to pregnant related causes is a major blow to the family as it leads to aggravating existing challenges. The causes of deaths of mothers, in most cases, also lead to neonatal losses or complications. We extend thanks to GlobalGiving and all its members and partners for the support rendered and we call on more people to support this cause.
