Grace successfully received a safe delivery for her and her baby.

According to doctors in Kenya, Grace’s delivery had no complications. Grace said, “I would tell pregnant mothers that children are the next generation, and if we do not save their lives, there will be no next generation.”

People helping people is a beautiful thing. Thanks for spreading the health on Watsi!

Grace is 28 and pregnant with her fourth child. She and her husband are saving and preparing for the birth as best they can, but Grace is nervous. She told Lwala “I am worried that when the labor happens, it will happen too fast before I can make it to hospital.”

Only 44% of births in Kenya are attended by a skilled health professional even though medical care can avoid and treat many of the risks associated with maternal mortality and morbidity. Lwala Community Alliance and their maternal health program want this to change. They provide maternal care and community education services for women like Grace.

Grace is hoping, “to deliver a baby well without any problems.” The $215 can help with that. Grace will receive essential pre- and post-natal care and will be able to deliver her baby in a hospital. Let’s give Grace and her baby the gift of healthcare.

Mu

Mu is a 17-year-old boy who lives with his sister in Mae Sot, Thailand. Before that, he lived with his parents, one older sister, two younger brothers and one younger sister in a refugee camp. His sister works at a non-governmental organisation helping others in need. Around mid-August, Mu woke up one morning with pain in his left knee. At first he thought that the pain would go away on its own and that it was nothing serious. However, when the pain remained a few days later, he told his sister about it. His sister bought him a type of Burmese pain reliever balm to apply on his knee. He applied the balm for a week, but he did not feel any better. When he and his sister noticed that his left knee had become slightly swollen his sister called their father. Mu’s father told them that it could be an ulcer and suggested that they go to a hospital or buy him pain medication to reduce swelling. His sister bought the medication their father had suggested at a pharmacy, and Mu took it for a week. However, he did not feel better, and the swelling did not decrease. Mu was able to have an MRI at Chiang Mai Hospital and now the doctor recommends he undergo surgery to remove a tumor on his left knee. Mu sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund and is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on December 17th. He is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care which will enable him to get off of using crutches and back to feeling well again. Mu said, "After I heard from the doctor that my leg does not need to be amputated, I feel so happy."
