Providing Maternal Health Care to 60 mothers
The maternal mortality rate is 430 deaths per 100,000 live births. Uganda has the 32nd highest maternal mortality rate in the world. Women need better access to family planning, which would prevent 70% of maternal deaths. This project will provide access to care from skilled healthcare professionals, antenatal and postnatal care, improved general health and sexual health care, and increased knowledge surrounding warning signs of complications. It will reduce complications during pregnancies. project reportread updates from the field

Supporting Safe Deliveries for Expectant Mothers
The population in this community is about 15,000 and 30% are of child bearing age. The distance to the next health centre providing maternity services is approximately 6 kilometres. We have had incidences where we had to provide three emergency deliveries as the mothers could not make it to the next health centres before the baby comes. We would be helping many mothers in this community by completing the maternity centre.
