“I hope to feel better soon and to join my new school,” says Christine.

Say hello to Christine, an honest and hardworking 16-year-old girl living in Kenya with her parents and her eight siblings. Christine is in school and hopes to become a teacher after completing her education.

Christine is pregnant and having a difficult pregnancy. Although she is ready to join secondary school, Christine finds it challenging to walk to school. Her legs are tired and she feels a burning sensation on her back, preventing her from enjoying her usual lifestyle. She needs special care to ensure a safe delivery, but her family cannot afford to pay for it.

To support their large family, Christine’s mother is a farmer and her father teaches at a local primary school. “Her mother tell us that her fathers income is not even enough to supplement the family’s need and paying Christine’s safe delivery cost is completely out of their reach,” shares our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance (LCA).

We can fund a safe delivery for $290. In addition to the delivery, Christine will be offered pre and postnatal care. Let’s get Christine the support she needs so she can return to school and achieve her dreams of being a teacher, just like her father.
