Opportunities to Give

In the past year 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. We need to expand our services to meet the increasing needs of the community we support and our goals for 2013 are BIG!

Check out the ways you can contribute to a year of growth and improved maternal health in Uganda! If giving as a gift, download our Opportunites to Give Catalogue and print off the appropriate page to fill out the note at the bottom of the page to give to the recipient of your gift sharing how your donation made a difference in Uganda.

 

Purchase An Acre of Land

With a reputation for providing the best maternal health care available, demand for Shanti Uganda’s services is growing at an ever-increasing rate. It is time for Shanti Uganda to expand our capacity to continue meeting the maternal and infant health care needs of the local population.

The first step is to purchase an additional one-acre plot of land, which will allow us to move forward with planned construction projects and expand our existing Community Garden.

We have identified the only remaining piece of available land, which borders our current property, and have negotiated a fair price with the landowner. Given the quick nature of real estate and our desire to purchase this land while it is still available, our need to secure funds to purchase this land is immediate.

Provide Birth Supplies & Emergency Transportation to over 2000 Ugandan Women

With a reputation for providing the best maternal health care available, demand for Shanti Uganda’s services is growing at an ever-increasing rate and we require your support to provide the birth & medical supplies needed to meet this demand.

Not only will your donation provide the medical & laboratory supplies needed to continue services, but it will also go towards the annual costs to run our emergency transportation vehicle. This vehicle transports women should complications arise and allows us to deliver vital medical supplies to our centre.

Provide Solar Power to Light the Birth House & Power the Laboratory

Many of the births that take place at the Shanti Uganda Birth House happen throughout the night. Our existing solar system has been running strong since 2010 and needs a new battery and solar panel upgrade to meet the increasing need for power.

Your donation will provide a new battery and additional panel to improve our existing system and allow for continuous light throughout the night. It will also allow us to store medications requiring refrigeration onsite, allowing us to avoid transporting supplies on a weekly basis.

Power the birth house and provide birthing mothers with a safe birth in the hands of our skilled team of Midwives.
