In this region of Uganda, with a high population of mothers who are HIV positive, accurate lab work, and special precautions in delivery are often the difference between life and death for an infant.
If you could provide a way for 2000 women in Uganda to have access to a safe birth, immunizations for their children, HIV testing and information about family planning, wouldn't you?
Current Needs Are:
- An acre of land to expand Shanti Uganda's birth house and garden
- Birth supplies and transportation for pregnant mothers
- Solar power to light the birth house and laboratory
- An office space to keep programs running strong
