ASMILE GIVEN TO FAMILIES AS MOTHERS RECEIVE HOSPITAL DELIVERIES
The project has yet made a woman smile as she benefited from the subsidized packages at Mayanja Memorial Hospital. Out of 60 normal deliveries registered at the hospital 20 were beneficiaries of the subsidized payments that is; instead of paying 14o dollars they paid 80 dollars the difference of 60dollars is covered by the project. This has enabled the mothers to access hospital deliveries at an affordable cost, courtesy of partners and friends at GlobalGiving and this is appreciated.
The hospital received 18mothers with complications from the communities under the project who were identified by the Village health teams and referred to Mayanja Memorial Hospital from the lower level health units. Out of 18, 08 mothers had cesarean sections carried out to save the mothers and the neonates/babies completely free of charge. The other 10 benefited from the subsidized payment that is; instead of paying 496 dollars they spent only 240 dollars, the difference was covered under the project. All glory and praise goes out to the GlobalGiving partners and friends world wide, may the Almighty reward you all. Under the subsidized program 240 dollars cover ANC, essential drugs at delivery, private accommodation in the ward, postnatal care for both the mother and the new born baby.
Along side the benefit of delivering in the hospital these mothers receive talks about the different diseases such as cervical cancer and hepatitis B as immunisable killer diseases. They are encouraged to come back at appropriate time to receive the free check ups and/or are directed to health facilities within their localities to receive the vaccines.
As the Hospital that benefits from the project we are great full for your generosity in giving and the mothers are very appreciative as one expressed her self thus, ‘I would have died and left my other three children motherless if it was not for the kindness of that nurse who checked me and took me to the health centre that referred me to Mayanja Memorial Hospital for this good care and the operation which I would never have received later on been able to pay for, thank you people again and again.’
This gives us motivation to reach out to more mothers in need by your kind giving through the GlobalGiving to our project to ensure safe hospital deliveries are received by vulnerable pregnant mothers.Attachments:
