The hospital’s resources were stretched lowering the efficiency and quality of services. Moreover, the maternity wing was under equipped and yet many mothers visited the hospital for delivery and post-natal services. Other alternative facilities were kilometres away which posed a risk of complications that would result to maternal and child deaths.
Safaricom Foundation donated a renovated and well-equipped dispensary at a cost of KES 1.2 Million.
The dispensary is in capacity to provide quality maternal and post-natal services to mothers. Furthermore, mothers need not travel far away to access these services hence assuring their safety and health. With the help of the equipment, the medical team is able to attend to many patients which will help alleviate maternal and child mortality rates in the county.
