We are so pleased to be able to introduce you to the clinic’s new field midwife funded by The Waterloo Foundation and a private individual. The interviews have taken place and Nsimenta Asaba was selected for the role.
She is a Ugandan within the clans of Liwolo who has been settled in Mijale for a long time, and she is a practising Christian. Her grandfather, Rev.Yosea Roba, was once the pastor in charge of Midigo parish-Mijale Church of Uganda. She loves singing in the church and she lives a prayerful life. She is 24 years old.
Asaba will divide her time between the Mijale Clinic maternity work helping the midwife Bethy, who delivered 218 babies single-handedly in 2021, and also work in the refugee camps where there is no maternal health support. In the camps she will be teaching about hygiene, family spacing, correct use of a mosquito net and maternity classes. As well as helping deliver some babies.
She has been provided through a generous donor with a motorcycle, iron pills, mosquito nets, mama kits, mobile phone and laptop for reporting.
She will also help with the Clinic outreach services.
If you would like to support our maternity work in rural northern Uganda, we currently have a wonderful match-funded opportunity to support the salary of midwife Bethy – see more.
