Our club along with several others, through the considerable efforts of Steve Jambor, has supported an important international project in Uganda.  The project is applying for a Global Grant and we will soon ratify a Letter of Intent to pledge $2000 to this continuing program.
The Mama’s Coming Home program calls to install ob/gyn ultrasound units in 100 rural Ugandan health centers for the specific purpose of scanning mothers for complications of pregnancy. A minimum of two midwives per health center will be trained to operate the units and fulfil the duties of the program. We will support them technically and operationally with training and community involvement. The project will expand to cover all Health Center III with maternity services within five years, as the parties agree.
