Maternity Ward September 2019 Report

In the month of June 2019, we were able to raise $2,500 through the Global Giving for the maternity ward. Thank you so much for your support. In the month of August, we enclosed the maternity ward with bricks with the funds raised through Global Giving. Since the beginning Global Giving donations have totaled $3,383 out of our goal $10,000. I would like to underline the fact that FWA members contributed labor valued at $600 in order to achieve this step.

The next step is building the second story of the maternity ward. This will cost $3,000 for the bricks, $2800 for the pillars at $100 per pillar. The African Great Lakes Initiative has given FWA a grant of $3200 towards the $5800 cost. Therefore FWA needs to raise $2600 to complete the walls of the second story.

When this is completed, the following step will be to roof the structure. The timber for the rafters will cost $4,000 and 120 iron sheets will be $2,760 ($23 per sheet) for a total of $6,760..

We are very thankful for the work we have already done. We strongly appreciate all our donors. We still hope to raise more funds through Global Giving. Whoever who is reading this report can forward it to friends or relatives so that we can finish the second floor and the roofing with iron sheets by December 2019.
