Help and Empower Ugandan Mothers with Shanti Uganda

In Uganda, 16 women die every day from complications surrounding childbirth.

That is a staggering statistic.

16 women every single day do not survive to meet their newborns. Many lose their lives or the lives of their babies soon after.

In 2012 Shanti Uganda has assisted in bringing 113 new lives into the world safely and peacefully, tested over 400 mothers and partners for HIV and other STIs, provided 1000 antenatal care appointments and run a weekly infant immunization and family planning program.

As the community grows, so do the needs of the organization.
