Conference about the problems around maternal mortality in Teso

 Friday, Amecet was invited to attend the conference about Maternal mortality in the Teso region. The conference was organized by Teso Safe Motherhood. People from the government, community leaders and medical personnel were together to discuss the problems and seek for solutions.
It was interesting to hear what is going on and what are the main reasons for so many mothers who die after delivery. Good to see that the mortality in Uganda has dropped a lot, it reduced to half from what it was 15 years ago. But still too many mothers die after giving birth. Many times it is of severe bleeding. The good news is that Soroti is trying to get a blood bank in Soroti, so there will be more blood available for transfusion. Now we get the blood transported from Mbale. 

As Amecet, we know of the pain and the struggles a family goes through, after they lost the mother.
Right now, we have 9 baby's in Amecet, who lost their mother after the delivery!!
Nine baby's without a mother, nine families without a mother, nine husbands without a wife!
I hope and pray, more will be done to have mothers deliver safely!!!
