Stories from the field

Future Warriors Naareliyo and her child.New mother Naareliyo, pictured here with her child, gave birth at the dispensary in Lerang’wa, having received a Birthing Kit from the clinic in Kitenden via BKFA field partner, Future Warriors, Tanzania.

She says “I had a lot of pain near to the due date and the doctor told me the baby was forcing its way prior to the due date. I had two weeks’ bedrest in the hospital before the birth due to the pain, but before I was admitted I went home to prepare and remembered to take the kit with me as the hospital asks for us to bring our own new gloves and scalpel to reduce costs.”
