Too many baby's are loosing their mother.

We have 12 baby's at the moment, small baby's under the age of 3 months! From 10 of them, the mother died after giving birth, mostly by over bleeding! Several of them, were born by Cesarean section, via an operation, and the mother didn't come out of the operation.
Last year, in September we had a 13 year old girl who was going to give birth, it had to be done by an operation, she was too small to give birth on the natural way. Two of our staff, nurses, were allowed to be with her during the operation. They were amazed (they were Dutch) how limited the operation room was. We had talks with the doctor and out of that we had contact with a Dutch organisation, Metterdaad from the EO. We asked their help to provide a monitor machine for Soroti Hospital, so that the doctors will be able to monitor the vital signs of the mother during the operation. Metterdaad was willing to try to help to get the funds and we had a radio interview, when we were in Holland. This coming Saturday the first half of the interview will be broadcast on Radio 5 at 21.50. (This is for the Dutch people). Please pray that we get enough money to buy the monitor for the hospital and so help the mothers and their baby's!
