“With no risk of infection at delivery, Salome and her family are happy to hold their little baby girl, Iscar,” reports our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance. “She is able to continue with her daily house chores as a mother and a wife.”

“I hope my children grow up to be well educated, respectful and responsible to their families,” adds Salome.

“I hope for a safe delivery and to deliver a healthy baby in a germ-free zone,” shares Salome. Salome is a 26-year-old hardworking mother of five from Kenya. Salome goes to church with her family and enjoys playing, watching television, and listening to educational radio programs.

Salome is pregnant with her sixth child but is having a difficult pregnancy. For the past two weeks, she has been experiencing lower abdominal pains and back pains and nausea after every meal, especially in the morning hours. She is unable to complete her daily chores, including farming, which is a source of livelihood for her family. Salome’s husband is a small-scale farmer but his income is not enough to take care of the family and pay for medical bills.

We can fund a safe delivery for $290. In addition to the delivery, Salome will receive pre and postnatal care. “The patient will be free from pregnancy complications and will resume her normal life duties,” explains our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance. “She is looking forward to starting family planning as soon as she delivers her baby, and later, starting a small business to sustain her family.” Let’s give Salome the support she needs to welcome a new baby and return to her daily activities!
