Construction of Maternity Clinic in Kenya
We are pleased to announce that we have recently received funding for the building of a Maternity Clinic in North Eastern Kenya. Construction will soon begin on a 2-room birthing and maternity unit in the isolated Diif Division of Wajir County, Kenya. Once built, the aim is for the maternity clinic to provide primary health care services for mothers and children from 5 villages in Diif Division, Wajir County. The focus of the project is on providing much-needed health services including family planning, mother and child health, immunization, low cost nutrition & food preparation, and other postnatal care services, thereby providing vital primary maternal and child health services to these vulnerable communities. This project will also develop an innovative system of training traditional birth attendants, reporting and monitoring key maternal and child health issues to the authorities without delay.
