KIVULINI

Kivulini is a Swahili word meaning ‘shade’ – and this is what we hope to offer the women and children who come to us. The centre will specialise in offering excellent obstetric care for the region’s poorest residents, while providing a model environment for experienced and trainee midwives to enhance their skills. The complex includes 44 beds, a dedicated skills lab and staff hostel, fistula surgery, waiting areas and a café for patients.
