The Newly formed Companions of the Order to Kenya, under the guidance of the Order’s Embassy have watched over the construction of a stand alone maternity theatre at the Catholic Mission Health Centre in Tiaty, East Pokot.
The theatre will allow expectant mothers with complications to be operated on, there and then, rather than travel the 124 km to the nearest facility. This is all happening in an area that is considered to be one of the most climatically harsh in Kenya in an extremely isolated region.
The construction team, under the guidance of Father Maxwell Atuguba of the Holy Ghost Fathers Kenya (Spiritans), has made rapid progress. He needed the construction to be finished before the next rains which will make the roads impassable. Luckily the roof is already on.
We set the target of $55,000 and raised $46,845 already to date.
Another 15% ($8,155) will be needed to complete this fantastic project in Western Kenya.
We are very proud of what we have achieved so far. Please spread the word and help us raise these remaining funds to complete the building before Christmas! Special thanks to the fund raising team Jan van de Does de Willebois, Gerolamo Chiavari, Wayne Hennessy-Barrett and Xavier Dall for their efforts.
