Building the septic tank.
From the months of July 2020 to October 2020 we have raised $784 through the GlobalGiving Platform for the maternity ward. From the month of July 2020 to October 2020, we have manufactured metallic windows and doors for our building under the support of the African Great Lakes Initiative.
Now we are building septic tanks with $791 raised through the GlobalGiving Platform. See picture #1.
For the moment, the next step in finishing the work of our building, is to start with the plastering of the walls. This will cost $3,000. FWA’s biggest dream is to become the largest one-stop center for women and expecting mothers where all maternity-related services will be found. In short, FWA aspires to become a comprehensive maternal health care in northern Bujumbura. FWA wants to contribute to decreasing maternal and child mortality in Kamenge and neighboring suburbs. To achieve this, we have started to expand our facility and add a maternity ward. Up to now, we have raised 60% of the total cost ($45,468 out of $75,000) and are talking to the Gould Family Foundation & Project Cure to provide us equipment. The maternity ward will include hospitalization rooms. When the building is completed and equipped, our HIV positive patients will receive free services. Other women will benefit from our services at low cost to ensure sustainability of our programs.
As we've already raised 60% of the amount, now our goal is to raise $30, 000 to complete this project.
We are very thankful for the great step achieved. Therefore, we give our heartfelt thanks all our donors particularly during this threatening pandemic. We hope to raise more funds through the GlobalGiving platform. We would therefore invite everyone who reads this report to share it with his/her relatives or friends so that they can support this very important work.
