One of the barriers of maternal health was limited access to services due to lack of infrastructure. Women travelled long distances to get health services. This posed a risk to the well-being of women and unborn children.
Safaricom Foundation’s Ndoto Zetu initiative donated a maternity wing at a cost of KES 12.5 million. This maternity wing consists of a delivery room, post and antenatal wards, a theatre, a newborn unit, a high dependency, 3 consultation rooms and a reception.
The well-equipped maternity wing is conducting safe caesarian section surgeries. There is increased level of care and capability to accommodate emergency cases. Women are delivering at zero risk.
