Supporting Safe Deliveries for Expectant Mothers

During the LRA war which lasted 23 years, many infrastructures were destroyed save for the main referral hospital in Gulu Town and a few private hospitals. Pregnant mothers had to travel many miles on foot . to get to a health centre. As a result many chose and still choose to deliver from home. This increases on the maternal mortality which stands at 430 deaths per 100,000 live births at the moment. However, a maternity clinic within the community will encourage mothers to use the facility.
