Poverty is one of the major barriers preventing women gaining access to adequate maternity care with the inevitable consequences.
To overcome this we intend that our services are available to even the poorest of the poor and will be offered to them free of charge.  We are therefore dependent upon your donations to allow this to happen.   For the next 12 months our costs for the services that we provide will be:


  • A safe uncomplicated delivery  – $150/£120
  • A Caesarean Section – $300/£240
  • A typical fistula repair operation  – $550/£440
  • A 1 week outreach programme – $750/£600
  • A 6 week midwife training programme – $2000/£1600


If you would like  to help us provide these services to Africa’s poorest women then please make a donation no matter how small.
