April 2022: maternity unit update

Many of you kindly sponsored Paul last autumn as we tried to raise the final funds necessary to get the maternity unit in Tshimbundu up and running.

The maternity unit has now been active for over 6 months and on average around 50 women are giving birth their every month. Previously they would have had to give birth without access to any proper medical facilities.

Here are a couple of pictures of the maternity unit now that it is open. The facilities are clearly basic but nevertheless represent a significant step forward for the local community.
