In September 2014 we set up our JustGiving page to help us raise money for a new delivery bed for Azur. As you can see from the photo below the old one was rusted through in places. The staff tried to clean the bed and protect the mattress with a new mattress cover. But the rust was slowly destroying it.
We aimed to raise enough money to replace the delivery bed with one to be bought in Kampala. But through MAMA supporters‘ generosity we were able to buy a new bed as well as replace all the curtains and aprons on labour ward. The curtains are important to maintain the women’s privacy and dignity during labour. The aprons protect the staff while they work on labour ward.
