About the project

The Challenge

Bumala B health centre provides health services to around 400 people in the sub-county.

The hospital had faulty infrastructure as well as inadequate equipment for maternity care. The hospital had frequent water leaks and power outages causing difficulties in quality maternal health services.

Important maternity equipment was missing and the delivery beds were uncomfortable for expectant women to use.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation funded the purchase of equipment at a cost of KES 1 million. The equipment included delivery beds, ward beds, a blood pressure machine, an examination lamp and infant weighing scale.

The hospital was also equipped with solar panels to manage the power blackouts. The plumbing and roofing was fixed to stop the water leakages.

The Impact

Pregnant women are receiving the maternity services they require. The delivery beds are designed to their needs.

The solar panels have ensured effective delivery of services by stemming the frequent power blackouts.
