Stop Ugandan women & children dying at childbirth

by Whisper Vetted since 2016 Top Ranked

Summary

In Uganda people rich or poor can lose a wife, sister, mother, daughter or son at childbirth due to the very low standards of care at hundreds of private and government maternity facilities. Whisper has an opportunity to put a big stop sign to everything wrong that pregnant women are experiencing and bring our own values, endless love and hope to every single pregnant mother and newborn child. Help us and donate to this needed cause. Thank you

Challenge

Reports state that in Uganda every day 16 women die from conditions related to childbirth, and 10 out of 100 children die at birth. More than 67% of births are unsupervised, and even when they are, the quality of medical services are very low; many birth centres lack resources and qualified staff. Birth centres in Uganda are in a shocking state, with a lack of motivated and qualified staff and professionalism.

Solution

Whisper is raising $36,000 to establish a maternity department together with a Major Operation Theatre where women will undergo planned and emergency C-sections. The new department will also include gynaecology services and emergency neonatal care.

Long-Term Impact

Whisper will help fund pre-natal appointments for pregnant mothers, with proper examinations leading to a safe delivery of a healthy child. We will provide all the necessary education and medical examination/surgical procedures that every woman needs, so no child is born to die.
