Eye in the sky

posted in: Kivulini | 5

Last week, this photo of Kivulini Maternity Centre was taken from the air. It was so incredible to have a bird’s eye view of our project. It’s a real encouragement to see how far it has come over these last few years and to know that the construction part is almost complete.

It also serves as a reminder that we are a gateway of hope into the rural community around us, and that we are well placed to serve the poorest and most vulnerable women in this district.

The centre is buzzing with builders and craftsmen and the landscaping is well under way

The national and international team continue to grow and work tirelessly to ensure all systems are in place to ensure a safe and secure environment is in place before we open our doors in May

The staff residency – yellow building at the back of the centre for international volunteers became a home for 5 of us last month, with 2 more joining us this week. We have a wonderful view over Mount Meru

In April we will have a month of orientation for our national team –a great opportunity to get to know one another and form the foundation on which to build this incredible project of hope

As the construction comes to an end, we want to thank acknowledge the pioneers of this vision, and the those that have persevered to make it a reality.  Dr Andrew Browning, Katie Christie, Lucas Toroya, Paul Chinn, Babette Gallard and Anna Boyd

Bring on May

Country Director

      Hi Diane,
      We are planning to open the doors for both pregnancy care and for a fistula repair camp in early June. We have all our staff here now and are spending the next few weeks with training, orientation and outreach services.
