    Story

    On the 14th January 2017, I am planning to go to Ngora in Uganda to visit a small maternity unit which offers care to mothers and babies in an underdeveloped area of Eastern Uganda, the hospital is lacking in funds and the midwives and health care assistants work under difficult conditions with restricted medical backup.Some of the midwives also work in isolated rural clinics.
    I hope to offer support, encouragement and basic midwifery skills updating to some of the midwives working in the area, especially those who don't routinely receive very much. I also hope to make an assessment of how we can best offer help to them in the future. I would like to take them some equipment eg scales and blood pressure machines which they have requested. Any donations to Justgiving, large or small would be gratefully received

      Hi to all my friends family and colleagues, my plans to visit Ngora maternity unit in Eastern Uganda are progressing well with flights and hostel booked. I am now in contact with the midwife in charge of the hospital and arranging what to take with me. They have requested furniture which obviously will be a bit tricky as luggage on the plane ! so hopefully we will be able to have that ordered and delivered ,imagine trying to run a maternity unit with hardly anywhere to sit or work, so please donate to my cause even if it's just 50p, thank you
