November 23, 2016

Talent is a 17-year-old young woman from Uganda. She has six siblings, and she lives with her parents, who are small farmers. She helps her parents grow crops, including millet, beans, pumpkins, and corn.

Talent is pregnant with her first child. She visited our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital. Because she is young, Talent’s doctors consider her pregnancy to be high-risk. They recommend that she receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On January 1, she will begin to receive supplements and attend antenatal checkups and health education classes. She will deliver her baby in the hospital, and her baby will be examined by a midwife. After birth, Talent and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.

Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund her care. After giving birth, Talent hopes to go back to school. She wants to name her baby Natukunda (“God loves us”).

“I thank the donors who are paying for my daughters’ prenatal clinic visits and hospital delivery to have a safe delivery,” says Talent’s mother. “May God bless you.”
