The Clinic has unskilled birth attendant who is pioneering behavior change locally as more mothers opted for skilled delivery.

In the span of just two years, 105 women gave birth to 107 babies at Onura Maternal Maternity Survival Clinic rather than give birth at home, and 8 mothers with serious pregnancy related complications referred to Juba State Hospital.

The project supplied the survival clinic with: 10 small boxes of cotton wool, 5 boxes of syringes/needles, 4 boxes of sterile gowns/gloves, and 15 boxes maternity pads, 3 sets of umbilical cord clam, 9 boxes forceps/sutures, 4 sets of birthing mats/scissors, and 1 set of delivery instruments.

The project also purchased a childbirth delivery bed, which reinforced the capacity building of the clinic. This order is on way to Onura.

At the request of women, Anne, (a village midwife), is awarded a two year course leading to “Certificate in Midwifery”, at Mayanja memorial Hospital Foundation, Uganda. After completion, she will return to help mothers deliver safely in Onura. She is waiting for her admission. We still don’t know if or not she will be accepted. By the time of reporting we haven’t heard from the college.
