THE STORY:

Denis Muwanguzi wrote -

Suubi Health Center, located in Budondo, a remote community in Eastern Uganda has partnered with Marie Stopes Uganda to provide pregnant women with free antinatal care services throughout the 9 months of pregnancy and 6 weeks postnatal care. The word is spread very fast, 94 women registered in 3 weeks and are receiving antinatal services under this scheme, the ambulance is frequently on the road taking complicated cases to the main hospital... AND NOW, we are out of supplies and space. We have only one delivery bed, one resting room. A meagre 17% of the women in a catchment population of 260,000 deliver from health facilities due to lack of opportunity. Its a big opportunity for the community and for Suubi to serve and increase the number of women who deliver with skilled and professional birth attendants and cut the maternal mortality that is above 400/100,000 live birth. Right now what we urgently need is two more delivery beds, 4 patient beds and accompanying supplies, a tent as temporal space for some of the staff so that such rooms can accommodate mothers and their newborn babies. We invite you to be part of this cause, every penny counts and we would be happy to share the progress and faces of happy, healthy babies and their mothers on our media pages.(https://www.facebook.com/BudondoInterculturalCenter/)
