“Saline safely delivered her baby boy, Glen Otieno, at Lwala Hospital under the good care of the facility’s nurses,” shares our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance. “Saline takes the doctor’s prescriptions very seriously when it comes to administering medication to the baby.”

“I am optimistic to have a medical doctor in Glen when he becomes older,” Saline shares.

Meet Saline, a 25-year-old wife, and mother of three boys living in Kenya. She married a farmer at age 18 and, although unable to attend school growing up, is putting her children through primary school.

Saline is pregnant; however, according to our medical partners at Lwala Community Alliance, Saline is experiencing a loss of appetite, weight loss, vomiting after every meal, and lower abdominal pain. As a result, Saline feels very weak and has little energy to get up and move around.

For $290, Saline will receive both prenatal and postnatal care, as well as a safe delivery. This will help ensure that Saline’s symptoms are addressed so that she can continue to help out around the house throughout her pregnancy. The funds will also provide a safe delivery so that she will be able to join her husband on the farm after the baby is born.

Saline says, “I hope that my baby is born in a safe environment, healthy and immunized at birth to enable him/her to grow strong.”
