HELPING MOTHERS THROUGHOUT THE LOCKDOWN

By LUBWAMA RONALD | PROCUREMENT OFFICER

Since the lockdown started on 21st March, it has been difficult for every sick person to travel to the hospitals to get medication. Pregnant women have been heavily affected as well. There is no provision of public means of transport which most of our patients can afford.

With the help of our beloved donors, we have been able to provide transport means to the pregnant women within the Eastern region. This has helped them to attend routine antenatal screening in order to identify high risk mothers. We have also conducted free maternity services where by pregnant women deliver for free and are given free treatment. All this has been done to help the vulnerable pregnant women to deliver safely during the countrywide lockdown.

So many mothers have been saved including a 28 year old mother who was a referal from a peripheral facility with postpartum bleeding. She delivered from a certain health center in Jinja district but they could not handle her situation. She was directed to our Hospital and on admission tests were done including CBC and her Hb was 8. She was administered with some analgesics, cleaned out all the clots and she was transfused. No reactions were observed and the mother greatly improved.

We thank all our beloved donors for donating towards this life saving project. It has saved so many lives of mothers and the newborn babies.
