• Bududa District Hospital

April 2017 sees the start of our project in Bududa District Hospital.

It might not be far as the crow flies, but the winding and bumpy road means that it is far away and many sick babies fail to reach the regional neonatal facilities in Mbale.

As we launch our training course and help support the development of a simple neonatal unit we aspire to and dream of a fully functional nursery in Bududa by the end of the year.

We would like you to support our newborn care training course in Bududa. If you would like to help us provide the teaching and training resources we need please don’t hesitate to get in touch or click on the title above. 

  • Kapchorwa District Hospital

In March 2016 our team were invited by staff at Kapchorwa District Hospital to help them set up a neonatal unit. 

Under our guidance they have developed a dedicated 6 bed neonatal unit where we have trained their nurses and doctors to provide basic neonatal care.

Our Born on the Edge neonatal clinician, Juliet, ran our 14 week training course and has continued to mentor the team weekly since. They are now up and running and successfully saving newborn lives by themselves.

Donate to our Kapchorwa Project

 

We have completed our newborn care training course in Kapchorwa and their neonatal unit is functioning well. They desperately need some basic equipment including a simple oxygen monitor and oxygen concentrator. Please help us provide this life saving equipment. 

  • Pallisa District Hospital

An hour away from Mbale, Pallisa is a busy district hospital.

47 members of staff were taught on our fourteen module newborn care training course that we ran in Pallisa between December 2015 and March 2016. 

The hospital is currently undergoing a renovation of their wards including their planned neonatal unit and we can’t wait for work to finish so we can get them up and running.

Donate to our Pallisa Project

We plan to visit Pallisa on a regular basis when they have finished their renovations. These visits allow us to support the team there as their skills and knowledge grow. A generous donation will help us make this a reality sooner.
