Help Fight against Maternal Deaths

HELP US TO BUILD A MATERNITY BLOCK TO HELP SAVE THE LIVES OF MOTHERS AND BABIES AT CHILD BIRTH IN OUR HOSPITAL

The security man came with his usual feet-dragging steps and called, "Dokita, emergence!" "Which unit is it?" I quizzed. "Maternity," he said. I jumped out of bed and with my torchlight ran to the Medical Centre. The time was 3:06am and it was on November 26, 2015. As I approached the Centre, I saw the headlight of a motorized tricycle, popularly known as "Motor King."
In this area it is not uncommon to find such means of transport for emergency cases and as I drew closer, I felt a sense of urgency. There in the back of the motor king was a pregnant woman bleeding. As she was assisted to the ER, every step of hers produced the sound "tim", "tim", "tim". And that was the sound of blood clots as they dropped. This woman and many others were saved in 2015. 

THIS SIMPLY DESCRIBES THE RISK WOMEN GO THROUGH TO HAVE A BABY!

It took the collective effort of nurses, doctors, security men, orderlies and the community to achieve this feat.
The King’s Medical Centre (KMC) recorded zero maternal mortality in 2015. This is a feat that saved the lives of all the 721 women (that is over 735 babies) who delivered at the KMC including 22 sets of twins. To meet the Sustainable Development Goal on maternal mortality (SDG-3), little efforts such as this may mean a lot for Ghana. KMC is a hospital in the Kumbungu district of Northern Ghana that serves 238 communities with a population of over 130,000 people.
