Odeta safely delivered her baby.

Odeta delivered a healthy baby boy almost a month before her expected delivery date. Fortunately, she did not need a C-section. Her new son is named Derrick. Mother and child are still resting in the post-natal ward but will be going home in a day or two. They will return in six weeks for vaccinations and follow up.

“I thank all the donors greatly for their support for my safe delivery,” says Odeta. “My husband and I are determined that this will be our last child because we want to make sure we can give them a healthy life. I will ask God to bless all the donors.”

Odeta is a 31-year-old farmer and mother from Uganda who is expecting her fifth child. Odeta is a small scale farmer, growing food for her family such as beans, pumpkins, cabbage, millet, and maize.

Doctors consider Odeta’s pregnancy to be “high-risk” because her last child was delivered by C-section. This increases the likelihood that she will need to deliver this baby by C-section, as well.

Doctors recommend that Odeta receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On July 4, she will begin to receive pre-natal supplements and attend pre-natal checkups and health education classes. She will also be closely monitored during and after her delivery to ensure both she and baby are healthy.

Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Odeta’s ongoing care.

“I thank the donors for their support. It is a great blessing. If I could, I would give them some small gift,” Odeta says.

Prince

Prince is a 5-year-old and the youngest of three children. His father works at a construction site to help provide income for his family. In early February, Prince was on the school bus when the bus ran into a nearby shop. Prince was trapped between seats and became injured. He was rushed to a nearby health facility for first aid and underwent surgery. Two weeks later, he was referred to our medical partner's care center Kijabe Hospital for review. Prince then underwent a debridement and skin graft procedure in mid-February. Currently, Prince cannot walk and attend school, which is affecting his ability to move up in grades this year. Prince’s first two surgeries were paid for using his parent’s medical coverage, but the medical insurer turned down the current request for the surgery Prince needs to heal. Prince’s family shared that their trips to the hospital have exhausted their savings. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help Prince receive treatment. On May 25th, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure. This surgery will address any risks of infection so that Prince’s leg can heal and he can walk again and resume his studies. AMH is requesting $1,185 to help to fund this procedure. Prince’s father said, “Prince has missed school since February. He was supposed to graduate to grade one, but due to the injuries, he did not. He needs this surgery so that he can be able to walk again.”
