“Just as Brenda’s heart desired for a successful pregnancy, her heart is at ease now that her baby Nicholas was delivered safely,” reports our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance (LCA).

Now that she has successfully given birth, Brenda is able to help around the house again, and care for her new baby.

“I long to have a successful pregnancy with few or no complications at all, and that my baby is born safely in a hospital,” shares Brenda. Meet Brenda, a newly married 19-year-old woman. Brenda is from Kenya, where she lives with her husband.

To support his family, including Brenda, his siblings and his mother, Brenda’s husband owns a small piece of land. He grows seasonal crops, but the produce only sustains the family for about two months a year. For this reason, her husband commutes to a nearby town to work as a day laborer. Brenda works as a hairdresser but she has recently been unable to attend to her customers.

Brenda and her husband are expecting their first baby, but Brenda is having a difficult pregnancy. She is experiencing lower abdominal pains, making is difficult for her to do house chores and continue working.

We can fund pre and postnatal care and a safe delivery for $290. “The patient will be able to return to her normal duties after safe delivery without any complications,” explain our medical partners at Lwala Community Alliance. Let’s support Brenda and her husband as they welcome their first baby!
