The project is very grateful to the support extended to the mothers by your generous contributions through GlobalGiving. The village health team who visit and identify these mothers is much appreciated for the increased ANC visits and the numerous mothers saved who otherwise would have lost their babies and their life.
Donations to save the mothers project at Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation to a tune of 230dollars has enabled 3mothers access safe hospital delivery. The three had complications that required Caesarean section which were done free and live babies delivered all courtesy of your good will. The money so far donated has also catered for 2 more mothers deliver with assistance from our medical team freely plus medication and ward stay for 24hours. We appreciate your generous contributions to this cause for when you save a mother you save a community. The contributions to this specific project have catered wholly for six mothers and they will forever be grateful because they were from far to reach areas and quite vulnerable (poverty stricken).
