About the project

The Challenge

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.

The Intervention

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 Impact

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.
