Elizabeth safely delivered her baby.

Elizabeth delivered a healthy baby girl! She needed to have a C-section, so she was very glad to be in the hospital. She has named her daughter Patience. She and her daughter are both doing well and have returned home. Her husband is excited to have her home and to see his first-born child.

“The help from Watsi was a miracle,” says Elizabeth, “and I look forward to telling Patience about it. I thank all the donors for helping me have a safe delivery in the hospital.”

Meet Elizabeth. She is a 17-year-old expectant mother originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo. During her free time, she likes going to church and learning the local language in Uganda. She and her husband work together to grow food on a small farm.

Elizabeth’s pregnancy is considered to be high-risk due to her age and her baby’s breech position. The doctors recommend that she receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On April 4, she will begin to receive supplements and attend antenatal checkups and health education classes. She will deliver her baby in the hospital, and she will undergo a C-section if necessary. After birth, Elizabeth and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.

Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund hospital monitoring for Elizabeth.

Elizabeth says, “I thank the donors for the support they are according to people like me, who come in need of safe deliveries. May God bless the donors, and I will tell my daughter about the miracle of Watsi at Bwindi Hospital.”
