In Burundi, Africa, 1 in every 125 women and 1 in every 17 babies do not survive childbirth. There is an urgent need for accessible healthcare in Burundi. In Muramvya province, population 300,000+, there is only one facility with a sonogram machine and the ability to perform Cesarean sections. This hospital is serviced by a single ambulance covering 28 clinics.
There are currently no facilities that can support complications during birth in the outlying commune of Bukeye, population 80,000, which is 30 minutes’ drive from the district hospital. It is not uncommon for a mother in distress to wait over 6 hours for the province’s only ambulance to arrive. By then, it is often too late.
Cornerstone Clinic is honored to meet that need in the near future through our Maternity Wing that will provide extensive maternity & newborn services to ensure Moms’ and babies’ have the chance they deserve to live.
