Social Relief Organisation (SRO)
Social Relief Organisation (SRO) was accepted as a partner in late 2013. BKFA were thrilled to welcome the Somalian partner. There is a obvious high level of need in Somalia and previous attempts to send kits have not been successful. However, with the current transport system and a brilliant working relationship between BKFA and SRO we have achieved considerable success. They have provided BKFA with some exceptional feedback. They have reported that “Yes, a lot has changed in the birthing practice, the rate of child birth complications was very high previous but with the presence of these skilled midwives and the availability of the Birthing kits so far the situation is good and improving and if the same spirit continues there is high hope of overcoming the existing menaces in the rural sector.” BKFA hopes to be able to fulfill the total kit request numbers (25,000 kits) for SRO in 2014-15.
