Happy Mother, after C/S due to prolonged labor
Happy Mother, after C/S due to prolonged labor

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).

The project at MMHF has contributed tremendously below is a breakdown of the first three months of 2013 report;-ANC visits have improved of which 82 mothers attended their 1st visit and only 14mothers attended their 4thvisit.  IPT 1 and IPT 2 were received by 24 and 22 mothers respectively and of the above members a total of 48 were tested for HIV and none tested positive.  03 mothers knew their HIV status on 1st visit and were on ART for their own health.
