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.

This group of 24 is composed of 11 female and 14 male students. The graduation will be a reunion of these students. Mayanja Memorial Foundation will use this opportunity to capture stories of these students covering the period from when they left the Institute. The student stories will be presented in the upcming reports. The majority of the students are already employed in health facilities and other health institutions. The foundation extends thanks to Global Giving and Mayanja Memorial Institute for having made it possible for these students to attain nursing certificates.

Two students supported by Global Giving pass Exams

Early this week on monday 11th August 2014 the results from national examinations for certificate comprehensive nursing examinations were announced. Two (2) students supported by Global Giving were among those who passed these examinations. The two students are to register with the the Council for Nurses and Midwives. This will make them eligible to be employed by any health institution/project in the country (Uganda). The cumulative total number of students supported by Global Giving now stands at twenty four (24).

Thanks to Global Giving for enabling these 2 students to go through the nursing course. These students come from poor and vulnerable families which can not raise enough funds to meet the course fees. The support came at the moment they needed it badly. Had it not been support from Global Giving these students would not have completed their courses. It is our hope that the students will get employed and make their cotribution to their country and families.

Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation is very appreciative to Global Giving for all the support given that has enabled the 24 students to earn certificates in nursing. Thanks to all those who have made it possible.
