Today, Stanbic Bank Uganda together with the wider Ugandan Community has donated medical mama kits worth approximately UGX 24 million to Kawempe Referral Hospital.
The donation is part of the #EveryMotherCounts campaign where we and several other organizations and well-wishers are coming together to deal with the maternal health challenge.
The donations were given to Kawempe Referral Hospital because they have been grappling with high patient numbers and mortality deaths. Kawempe receives over 4000 pregnant women a month from all parts of the country and delivers an average of 100 babies daily
Dr Diana Atwine – “I thank Stanbic Bank Uganda for the kind contribution. We are sure that this will provide clean and safe delivery to our mothers at Kawempe Referral Hospital especially at this critical time when the country is battling the pandemic”
She added that maternal deaths create an urgent need for various stakeholders to collaborate and find quick solutions to ensure that all pregnant mothers have access to quality and affordable healthcare services.
Speaking at the handover event Emma Mugisha, Executive Director, Stanbic Bank – Uganda said:
“Increasing the maternal survival rate is an important goal for our community because it shows that we are addressing the one thing that binds us together.”
