I learned that the percentage of births taking place in our clinic is up 87%. Clinic-based births benefit from the assistance of a birthing attendant and improve the chances of a healthy baby. This is unlike births that occur at home, where the mother would have little or no assistance.
We are being asked how we are doing this! After meeting the staff at our clinic, I am not surprised by this success. They demonstrate the love of Christ so consistently. Not only do they have the technical skills needed to provide good health care services, they also have the patient care skills needed to help the patient feel important and loved.
Medical Teams international's Uganda staff is definitely fulfilling the vision and mission of the agency extremely well. Bible studies are carried out by the staff with UN staff and refugees participating. Additionally, our staff has devotions every morning with singing, Bible readings and prayer.
