Our mission is to build the capacity of the people of Lwala to advance their own comprehensive well-being.
In Lwala’s community, 95% of women are delivering their babies with a nurse in a safe health facility.
That’s big change from several years ago, when only 26% of moms had access to safe deliveries. New moms have this support because of you – helping us build a new maternity health wing on the Lwala Community Hospital and mobilizing intensive door-to-door outreach to pregnant women.
Support a new mom this Mother’s Day. You’ll give the gift of a safe delivery and a robust range of services including prenatal care, education on health and nutrition, and a good start to a new baby.
You can help us sustain our existing programs and roll out further initiatives by making a donation now.
