I continue to meet the patients, staff and international volunteers who are part of International Midwife Assistance's health work in Uganda. All speak highly about International Midwife Assistance as an organisation. I believe there is more to their gratitude...of which comes blessings to everyone who donates to International Midwife Assistance and helps it extend quality healthcare to those in need that they wouldn't have otherwise found or delivered easily.
International Midwife Assistance is a non profit dedicated to improving the welfare of women who live in places in the world where maternal and infant mortality is high. IMA and its partnership with other nonprofits and, most importantly the communities where IMA has served has significantly improved the health and lives of women and their families. I have volunteered as a physician with IMA in Uganda, working in the Teso Safe Motherhood Project in Soroti and their outreach clinics as well. I have seen the impact that providing skilled, compassionate care to women has had; it insures the best outcomes in their care. Imagine the statistic of 0 (yes, zero!) maternal deaths in 2013 and the significant effect it has on families and the community as a whole. And please imagine the impact providing women with family planning options has on the future of these women. I have be honored to be a board member of International Midwife Assistance.
IMA has improved maternal child heath by increasing the number of qualified.skilled and competent midwifes to attend to birth,decreasing the number of traditional birth attendances.
IMA has connected TSMP to KANGU which sponsors moms for safe births. This gives women in Teso- Uganda a beacon of hope
I had misconceptions about cancer screening IMA has done it all there is communiy sensitiasation and mobilisation for cancer screening
our babies are tested early for HIV, this helped me stay with hope because i would not have any baby alive
I did not know what family planning meant and i had a lot of misconceptions about this subject not until IMA started TESO safe motherhood project that this information got resolved. Now i am enjoying the benefits of family planning
I thank Teso safe motherhood project Funded by IMA for working closely with the community. Members of the community now called village health team are residents of respective villages that link community to health facility
ima has provided transport for reaching out to distant areas in teso, providing prenatal,family planning,lab services
IMA has enabled mothers from disadvantaged areas in teso to reach health facility through Bajaj programme which has reduced complications during labour
IMA has created good environment for work, orange and mango trees are planted at the compound and we are eating. These trees have helped modify the climate around
I am very happy for IMA it has enabled babies with low birth weight, hypothermia by providing warmth and encouraging breast feeding through on organisation called Embrace
Most of the health facilities in Uganda are found in the urban area, so we who stay in the rural are disadvantaged, so i appreciate IMA for supporting Teso safe motherhood project to reach us by outreach programes
I am very happy about the love that IMA has shown to us in Africa. Even when we were in the camps internally displaced and insurgency was on going IMA did not withdraw its assistance to us. Bravo IMA!
