Maternity Care in Awake!
While pre- and post-natal care and safe labor practices are much more common in Northern Uganda today than in the past, Julius’ home district remains in dire need of improved maternal services. So AUCF is stepping up to the challenge.
After consulting with USAID officials, our team in Uganda has determined that we can subdivide one of our existing structures, the James Fee Memorial Patient Ward, thereby establishing a separate — and sterile — labor and delivery facility. We will also hire a licensed midwife, who will team with our current staff to provide a full range of services to expectant and new mothers.
Thanks to the support of friends in the U.S. and Australia, we are thrilled to move on to this important new phase in the growth of our organization!
