Our mission is to build the capacity of the people of Lwala to advance their own comprehensive well-being.
Watsi brings a new face to Lwala’s network of partners by supporting “Safe Babies,” our maternal and child health outreach program. We just completed an initial pilot program using Watsi’s unique crowd-sourcing model. The Watsi website has put new faces on maternal health by featuring profiles of the mothers and new babies in Lwala. To read their blog featuring expecting mothers in Lwala, visit watsi.org.
This new relationship builds on the ongoing success Lwala has in maternal and child health. Currently, 95% of local women are now delivering with a skilled birth attendant – up from 26%. In February, we hit 100% for the first time ever. This successes are the culmination of our 2009 Clinton Global Initiative commitment. Partners like Ronald McDonal House Charities have invested in facilities, vehicles, public health outreach, and clinical services to achieve these outcomes. We continue to scale up our clinical services to respond to demand, and we are grateful for our partners’ ongoing support for mothers and babies in and around Lwala.
You can help us sustain our existing programs and roll out further initiatives by making a donation now.
