Maternity Care

Providing maternity care to vulnerable mothers & newborn in Northern Uganda

In Uganda, 16 women die per day because of complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. Join the mission to ensure that all women in the Otuke District region in Northern Uganda have access to the best maternity care and services to bring their newborns safely into this world


With no other health facilities within a 72km radius, The Kristina Health Clinic (KHC) averages 25 births per month.


The objective is to grow the KHC into a Level 4 Health Clinic. New infrastructure is required to make this happen, in the form of a Theatre. The addition of a Theatre to the KHC will increase its capacity to provide essential and emergency care for expectant mothers in the Otuke District and beyond. Women in rural villages of northern Uganda often do not have the capacity to travel or know of facilities where they can give birth. The team at KHC also plan Outreaches all over the district, to educate and improve access to health care services.


Love Mercy Foundation is the project partner who will activate this initiative on the ground. Love Mercy exists to empower communities in Northern Uganda to overcome poverty caused by the horrors of war. Love Mercy began in 2010 in Sydney, Australia after Eloise Wellings, Australian Olympian, met Ugandan Olympian and former child soldier, Julius Achon. She promised to fulfill his dream of restoring hope to his village in Northern Uganda after decades of civil war. Love Mercy sees a future where Northern Uganda is transformed through simple solutions to poverty – increasing access to education, health care and income generation.
