Veronica came to Kivulini to have her twins as she had no other means of accessing maternity care. Her twins were born prematurely and one was too sick to survive. The other was given quality care in our partner neonatal project at ALMC for 3 weeks and then here for 10 days before being discharged well and fully breastfed. A wonderful success story. Thank you to all the staff for the compassionate care-it is saving lives.
