Today we join our community in Maracha District to fundraise for the construction of a modern Newborn Unit at St. Josephs Hospital because we believe that every child deserves the #BestStartInLife, every mother deserves a safe delivery, every family deserves to have a safe delivery for the baby and mother. The modern newborn unit will also be very helpful due to the high numbers of teenage pregnancies in the community that needs more care and support during delivery as their bodies are not ready to handle child births.
This is for our people in Maracha, this is for our community, this is for our country, this is just the beginning and #ItstartsWithYou
