A first look inside new Agonga Maternity Ward!

As construction works for the new maternity ward at our Agonga health facility are nearing completion, we are greatly excited that this is happening in no other time than this when strengthening our health facilities is so critical to creating a lasting change for pregnant mothers and their new born babies living in some of remotest regions in Uganda.

Mothers, so critical to the survival of children, are still being lost to preventable conditions. Eighteen mothers die every day in Uganda.

Similarly, newborns are vulnerable and comprise a large proportion of under-five deaths. Most infant deaths happen in the first day or week of life because of poor care at the time of birth & can be avoided. They are caused by preventable diseases and conditions such as hypertensive disorders, infections, heavy blood loss after birth, malaria, pneumonia or diarrhea.

For both mothers and their infants, poor quality of care at childbirth, inequitable health services and inadequate family-care practices contribute significantly to their deaths and this is something we want to challenge in Gulu. However, we are still short of partners like you to enable the maternity ward acquire the necessary equipment and vital supplies.

And with every dollar you give, you choose to challenge child & maternal mortality too. Please be a partner in ensuring that mothers in Gulu and their new born babies don't die during child birth. It takes team work. That's why we are counting on you!
