An update from Kenya

We have just received an update from Christian Aid on the Nurturing Change programme in Kenya.

know research has committed to supporting the Nurturing Change programme in Kenya over the next 3 years.

In Narok County, south west Kenya, 435 women die in childbirth for every 100,000 births.

This exciting and ambitious new project will revolutionise maternal healthcare in Narok County.

Working together with local authorities and national government, three of Christian Aid’s partners will build two new maternity wards and renovate three more, as well as provide medicines, ambulances and basic medical equipment.

The project update reports that, among other things, 50 health workers and 400 community health workers  have been given training in maternal health and the first mother-to-mother and father-to-father support groups have been established.

know research will continue to support Christian Aid in this project. If you would like to support the project financially you can give at www.justgiving.com/knowresearch
