IMG_1854Pictures sent to us this week by the Rev. Dominique Ciza show the newly renovated and expanded maternity ward of Buyé Hospital. Stay tuned for details of the official opening! Every year, approximately 5,400 women from three surrounding municipalities give birth in the hospital, located just down the road from All Saints’ Anglican Cathedral, Funding from our diocesan REACH Campaign and PWRDF has enabled expansion of the severely crowded ward from three rooms to six. Conditions for expectant mothers will be vastly improved by a second delivery room and separate rooms for women who have had C-sections and complications of pregnancy. In addition, the walls and ceiling of the existing building have been repaired, modern windows installed and the roof and sidewalk replaced. A fundraising campaign led by our diocesan ACW will equip the ward with beds, mattresses, sheets and blankets.
