THE STORY:

THAAKAT FOUNDATION wrote -


Our quest is to support the tiniest of guests by helping build a maternity ward in the remote village of Blama Perri in Sierra Leone. This village is mainly inhabited by widows and children, ravaged by 11 years of civil war in the country. The nearest hospital, which is three miles away is reachable only by motorcycle due to terrible inroads. Even under these circumstances a woman who is 9 months pregnant cannot travel on the back of a bike. The lack of a proper birthing center has caused babies to be born under malnourished conditions with severe infections, while mothers must rest on rugged dirt floors.

Earlier this year we helped build five child-rescue centers in Blama Perri. These centers have been housing 100 residents in total, keeping them safe from terminal disease, rain and cold. The maternity ward will serve 1,000 people in Blama Perri and surrounding communities, ensuring that mothers and babies have appropriate medical care and hygiene during their most vulnerable times.

*Blama Perri has secured staff with state certified midwifery degrees.
