Maternity Africa is thankful to God, its donors, staff and patients for tremendous outcomes in 2021. The number of deliveries, 2,629, increased by 10% from 2020 (2,399), 72% higher than in 2019 (1,531), the first full year of activity at Kivulini Maternity Centre.
Pictured on the left is Mary; she is 36 years old. Mary lost seven pregnancies through miscarriages. Her husband left her as a result. She met another man, and got pregnant and was advised to attend Kivulini Maternity Centre for antenatal care. Her case was complicated, so Maternity Africa subsequently referred her to Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre for delivery. As one of our patients, Maternity Africa paid the other hospital for Mary’s care.
Mary is pictured here with Sr Monica Ndege (Maternity Africa Country Director, holding Mary’s baby son) and Dr Andrew Browning, Maternity Africa’s founder, on the morning that she returned to Kivulini Maternity Centre specifically to say thank you. Dr Browning is pictured praying for Mary and her new baby.
Maternity Africa looks forward to helping more vulnerable and marginalised women to deliver their babies in 2022. If you would like to donate to our lifesaving work, please follow this link. Thank you.
