Pamela safely delivered her new baby.

“Pamela successfully delivered Carol Night under the care of the nurses at Lwala Community Hospital,” reports her doctor at Lwala Community Alliance (LCA). “She was very happy to be in the facility where skilled healthcare workers could handle complications had they arised.”

“Since the delivery, Pamela can now walk for long distances - something that she stopped doing during her pregnancy,” continues LCA. “Her time spent visiting the market has considerably reduced to instead spend time caring for the baby, so she now sends her older children to the nearby outdoor market to buy food for their meals. One day, Pamela hopes that Carol becomes a nurse.”

Say hello to Pamela, a 39-year-old mother of five in Kenya, who is expecting her sixth child. Pamela married a farmer who owns land that he uses to provide for the family. She has learned valuable skills from the community health workers at Lwala Community Alliance, our medical partners in Kenya, including how to treat water so that it is safe to drink and how to prepare nutritious meals with locally grown produce. Although her hard work earns her enough money to feed her family and send her children to school, it is not enough to ensure that she will have a safe delivery.

Lwala Community Alliance explains that “she is experiencing pains unlike pervious pregnancies [and] due to discomfort, is not able to perform all the chores in the house that are required to raise her other children.”

For $290, Pamela will receive prenatal and postnatal care, as well as a safe delivery in a healthcare facility. Let’s help Pamela experience less pain throughout the rest of her pregnancy and ensure a sound delivery supervised by nurses!
