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.

Report for July - October 2014

Greetings to Global Giving Family.

Maternal and perinatal mortality rates remain high in Uganda. Many women who develop complications during pregnancy, delivery or puerperium are at risk of dying or disability.Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation continues to support Mayanja Memorial Hospital to offer services to vulnerable mothers when they are giving child birth. During the report period July - October 2014 Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation has assisted the hospital to meet for 10 women who were assisted to have safe deliveries. Of the ten women four had caesarian deliveries and six had normal deliveries. All the women and their newborns left hospital in good health. If these women did not have the support from well wishers through the Foundation they would have opted to deliver at home or under the care of traditional birth attendants with possible complications.The foundation is grateful to Global Giving, other well wishers and Mayanja Memorial Hospital for all the support. We welcome more support to support more mothers.
