Help us Build a Maternity Ward

 

Project #mamasandbabies

 

Our Restore Humanity Medical Committee made up of local doctors (from NWA) and our Board Members came together to try and assist the Kenyan community of Sirembe with some of their most pressing healthcare needs. We found an awesome opportunity to partner with the local dispensary and help them raise the funds needed to build a much needed Maternity Ward for the area. We are half-way there in construction and once completed they will be able to immediately start serving local mothers!

Proper pre-natal, delivery, and post-natal care are essential for the mamas and the babies! The health of the community begins in the womb and families need the mothers to be healthy to care for them all! A recent article in "Business Daily" concerning Kenya's current health issues surrounding both mothers and children:

In Kenya, "72,000 children below the age of one year died in 2012 while another 40,000 did not survive their first month of birth. 

Ministry of Health records show that 7.6 million children under the age of five died in 2010 from diseases that could have been prevented.

It is estimated that half of the deaths that occur within a month of a child’s life occur on the first day of their lives mainly due to lack of access to proper health services for mothers during delivery."
