Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Stanbic Bank has generously donated 100 mama kits and a radiant warmer to Kisugu Health Centre III, a clinic located in Makindye Division, Kampala Capital City. The donation was formally presented to the hospital management by Sam Mwogeza, the Executive Head of Personal & Private Banking at Stanbic Bank.
While Uganda’s current maternal mortality ratio remains relatively high at just below 200 per 100,000 live births, efforts led by the Ministry of Health are steadily reducing these numbers, Mwogeza highlighted. According to the World Health Organization, over 80% of pregnancy-related deaths are preventable.
Mwogeza expressed concern about Uganda’s maternal mortality rates, emphasizing the bank’s commitment to supporting the cause. He acknowledged the progress made but saw this as an opportunity for Stanbic Bank to contribute in a meaningful way.
Dr. Naula Rebecca Mpande, the Maternal and Child Health Incharge, commended Stanbic Bank for its timely and impactful support. She emphasized that the bank has elevated the standard of Kisugu Health Centre III, expressing gratitude for the consistent support received. Last October, Stanbic Bank donated 300 mama kits, followed by an additional 500 mama kits, benefiting pregnant women in the community.
Dr. Mpande highlighted the vulnerability of the community served by Kisugu Health Centre III, noting that most women are self-reliant. The continuous support from Stanbic Bank brings immense happiness to the community, showing that they are not forgotten.
Kisugu Health Centre III provides a range of services, including general care (Out-Patient Department), In-Patient care, Antenatal care, Maternity services, Immunization, and Family Planning, among others.
