FWA MATERNITY WARD OCTOBER 2022 NARRATIVE REPORT

From the month of June 2022 to August 2022, Through the GlobalGiving Foundation, FWA has received $1053, 81, including $203.57 for Ntaseka clinic maternity ward.

 In the month of July, under the support of the African Great Lakes Initiative (AGLI), both the placenta and ash pits were built. The pillars of the water tank were also built.

.

Under the support of the African Great Lakes Initiative (AGLI), there was recruitment of a full time medical doctor in the month of July 2022. In the month of August 2022, under the same support from AGLI, as we have frequent water shortages, there was the installation of Ntaseka clinic water tank.

                          

Although we still need more medical equipment for the maternity ward,

We are glad we have now started to have new babies born in Ntaseka clinic maternity ward.

 

We are very thankful for those who have made it happen. Therefore, we give our heartfelt thanks all our donors including the GlobalGiving foundation, the African Great Lakes Initiative (AGLI) of the Friends Peace Teams and the Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC). We would therefore invite everyone who reads this report to share it with his/her relatives or friends so that they can support this very important work particularly the maternity ward medical equipment.

From the month of February 2022 to April 2022, FWA has done much work for the maternity ward progression. Actually, on December 23rd, 2021, the FWA received a donation of $15,000 from the GlobalGiving whose memo was “Exceptional”. As the maternity ward was our priority, the funds were used for the maternity ward completion. It was in that way that there was the maternity ward official inauguration on April 8, 2022. Since the beginning of this project, FWA has raised $8470.83 for the maternity ward through the GlobalGiving. On April 26, 2021, the FWA received $6335.52 from GlobalGiving. The funds included $3853.62 whose memo was “Organizational level”. The 3853.62 were therefore used for the maternity ward. This means that out of $112360 raised for the maternity ward completion, a total of $27324.45 were raised through the GlobalGiving Foundation. Many thanks to all those donors who made it happen. The next step is the maternity ward medical equipment and additional staff recruitment. We are very thankful for the great milestone achieved. Therefore, we give our heartfelt thanks all our donors including the GlobalGiving foundation, the African Great Lakes Initiative (AGLI) of the Friends Peace Teams and the Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC). We would therefore invite everyone who reads this report to share it with his/her relatives or friends so that they can continue supporting this very important work.

From the month of August 2021 to January 2022, FWA has received a total of $1683, 01 from the GlobalGiving Foundation for the maternity ward. FWA has also raised some funds through the Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC) and the African Great Lakes Initiative (AGLI) of the Friends Peace Teams (FPT) for the maternity ward.

For the moment, we've already raised 95% of the total cost of our building, and now our goal is to raise $20, 000 for our maternity ward equipment and additional staff. This requires one year salary for a full time medical doctor and two nurses. Our plan is to celebrate the official entrance of this maternity ward by March 31st, 2022. We are very thankful for the great step achieved. Therefore, we give our heartfelt thanks all our donors including the GlobalGiving foundation, the African Great Lakes Initiative (AGLI) of the Friends Peace Teams and the Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC).

The Maternity ward project has done a significant progress since October 2018. This project has been very successful thanks to different donors including Vancouver Island Meeting, the GlobalGiving donors, African Great Lakes Initiative of the Friends Peace Teams, the Canadian Friends Service Committee and FWA members. This maternity ward is almost complete. Therefore Ntaseka clinic will contribute a lot to prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child and  FWA HIV positive beneficiaries will no longer pay high cost medicine when they are hospitalized. A big thank you to all our donors! Now, the present step is to find some equipment for the maternity ward to be functional. The cost is $10,000. Would you please spread this message to your relatives and/or friends so that they can support this so important work! Thank you very much!
