Unita is a radiant woman who lives in a rural area of Kenya. She and her husband grow their own food on a small plot of land, and pick up odd jobs or day labor at neighboring farms to earn the rest of the money they need to survive.
Unita is pregnant, and she wants a safe delivery for her baby. She first came across Lwala Community Alliance by participating in training programs that taught her how to treat water before drinking it, prepare locally grown foods, and save small amounts of money each week in case of medical or emergency need. Now, Unita is hoping to become a part of Lwala’s maternal health program.
Like every mother, Unita wants to give birth in a clean, safe, place, and have access to pre and post-natal services to make sure she and her baby are healthy. For $205, Lwala Community Alliance can provide Unita with pre-natal care, community health worker visits, a safe delivery at their hospital, and a post-natal checkup for her and her baby.
