Kericho District HospitalVirgin Money Giving

 

Kericho District Hospital is situated in Kenya, East Africa. The hospital serves residents from within the County and other neighbouring Counties.

Kericho District Hospital has a bed capacity of 270 beds. However, the bed occupancy remains as high as 110% in some wards with some patients sharing beds.

Neonatal mortality (death during first 28 days of life) remains very high. At Kericho District Hospital an average of 20 new born babies die every month.

Fresh Still Births at Kericho District Hospital is also at an alarming rate with an average of 15 Fresh Still Births experienced every month.

35 babies are dying every month at Kericho District Hospital.

These issues are attributed to;

  • delays in seeking medical attention during labour and delivery,
  • a limited number of delivery beds,
  • inadequate equipment in the current delivery rooms
  • long waiting time for available space in the delivery rooms before expecting mothers can be attended to

You can help change this dire situation and with your support we are hoping to raise a total of £50,000 to develop the maternity ward.

This includes the partition of 24 beds with curtains to allow privacy in the labour ward, repairs in the labour ward to improve sanitation and reduce risk of infections/ diseases and the purchase of new equipment such as Cardiac Beds, Baby Resuscitaires and Nebulisers.

Please help save lives.  Click here to donate
