Currently all high risk births are referred to Lira Hospital – 72kms away on a bumpy red dirt road and significantly under-resourced. A journey that takes almost two hours.
While the Kristina Clinic has been able to offer the space, the solution to maternity has been temporary. In order to reduce the strain on our Health Clinic and provide the best posisble care, we need to provide a separate facility. 30 babies delivered per month keeps our midwives busy, with most women having already attended pre natal appointments.
A stand alone facility would increase our capacity to offer safe births as well as complete outreach within the wider communities.
