A Newborn Care Corner $3,650 – in the Kristina Health Centre Postpartum Ward, it will provide new mums with a safe & private space for skin-to-skin care and all the equipment needed to care for sick & premature newborns
VHT training Kits $3,089– specifically to train 30 VHT leaders in Otuke district in caring for newborns, focusing on sick or premature babies. Some VHTs are in KHCs constituency, and some are from the clinics where we see the most maternity referrals. This aims to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and provide the best support to mums & babies.
A New Well $8,000– in Akadium Village Olec, in Otuke Town Council. This community shares a water source with local livestock and rely on rainfall to create an ongoing source.
Repairing a well $300– some wells in rural northern Uganda have been down for months, if not years. The repair team will repair, train and test the water in these wells and restore them to full function.
Every dollar goes such a long way in northern Uganda.
A $30 gift from you will provide a loan of seeds that a woman can take and turn into food and economic security. Through her hard work, she can maximise the 30kg, put food on the table and earn an income. This allows her to join the local savings group and develop a safeguard.
At the end of the year, she hands that 30kg back and another woman receives it the following year.
