Equipment for Mary Immaculate Health Center, Kenya

Project Leader:

Sister Sr. Justine Nyawira Muriuki

Mary Immaculate Health Center is run by the sisters of Mary Immaculate in the Diocese of Eldoret. We are in the rural areas where access to health care is a challenge. The health center started a maternal care unit where both pre-natal and post-natal services are offered. We have a small delivery room which is not fully equipped. The community we serve is a community that still believes in traditional medicine and home deliveries are very common. We have a number of teenage pregnancies and child led families due to the high numbers of young girls getting married at a young age. The facility serves these communities, and the greatest challenge is that we do not have a fully equipped maternity. The small delivery bed in the labor ward is not adequate and we also lack the required equipment in the labor ward. There is no other health facility nearby, and in cases of emergency the nearest government facility is 30 Km away. Your gift of $25 can help buy a hospital bed.
