Maternity ward expansion





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Uganda

Location: Jinja

Total Budget: $250,000

Area of Focus: Maternal and child health

A needs assessment carried out in Walukuba Health center IV showed that the maternity ward was initially a residential house and this explains partly why the immunisation of both mothers and children is done in a garage. The size of the maternity ward is very small with eight delivery beds. There is no incinerator to help dispose items that require incineration, the maternity wards lacks basic materials like patient monitors, stethoscopes, weighing machines, BP machines, thermometers, delivery sets, arm bags, no water tank, shortage of gloves, no mama kits, drums, Ceaserian section equipment, scan machines, patient screening machines, no solar power and sutures.The facility has only one pit latrine with one stance, and therefore a need for support to this health center IV.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
