Lamu District maternal health

Previewimage
Jul 13, 2011

We continue to build the capacity of the Lamu District Hospital by providing them with vital pieces of equipment that they lack. On Good Friday Alice visited the hospital to deliver a baby suction machine and two new delivery beds. This was only possible through the generosity of our supporters, both in Kenya and abroad.

Since then we have made further visits to the Lamu District to continue our help with the hospital, as well as to consider our long term plans for helping out with maternal health in the area.

One of the main purposes of our visits was to see the Anidan project on Lamu Island. This was drawn to our attention by a member of the German Association of the Order of Malta whilst we were on pilgrimage in Lourdes in early May. She had been holidaying on Lamu in the New Year and had come across this wonderful Spanish charity project. The site houses an orphanage, nursery school and children’s hospital. The hospital offers free treatment to all the children in the district up to 18 years of age. In 2010 they saw 20,000 children.

It is important for us to meet other charities, missions and organisations working in the district to get a clearer understanding of where the gaps are and where help is most needed.
