MARJORIE MOXON MATERNITY UNIT

The MARJORIE MOXON maternity unit is being built in Alemere Medical Aid Uganda Community Health Center in Amolatar district local government, Northern Uganda. Pregnant mothers in the local community can now give birth safely in a medical facility being supported by midwives. This will help us save many lives of mothers and children who could have died due to medical complications during labour. We would like to thank Marjorie Moxon, Christian African Relief Trust and our supporters for making the donations to construct Marjorie Moxon Maternity Unit.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), most pregnancies and child births are not planned in Northern Uganda. On average, women in Uganda have five children, but in rural areas they have many more. Only about 27% of women use a modern form of contraception.  

Sex education and being able to give birth safely in a medical facility supported by midwives is essential. The Marjorie Moxon Maternity unit has been built to save many lives of mothers and children who might have died from medical complications during labour otherwise. 

Supporting us means investing in MedAid UK for tomorrow and the years ahead. Every contribution is so valuable to support mothers and children. Your donations will save lives.
