New Midwife Vision Clinic
In November 2017 we were able to refurbish the building that was previously used by mothers whose babies were kept in the neonatal unit. These mothers slept in this collapsing building with broken cots, mosquito nets but no water, no electricity, and no comfort but visits from families and each other.
Instead of demolishing the building Midwife Vision came to an agreement with the Hospital and were able to re-purpose the building for training: A Midwife Vision Academy, specializing in the Helping Babies Breathe program (how to resuscitate babies that do not breathe at birth).
Our Mamas in the old building before the refurbishment grabbing a beanie for their babies from a box of knitted beanies from New Zealand and Australian Knitters!! “Asante Bibi!” (Thanks Grandmother!).
With the hard work of volunteer German Builder (from New Zealand) Phillip Ripa this building went from housing our mamas, the helping them through education of midwives.
