Help Yotkom provide exceptional health care to mothers and babies in Uganda

If you have a heart to help women and children in Africa, we believe our Yotkom project is a good place to invest and make a real difference .

For a woman and an unborn baby,  going through a pregnancy and delivery in this part of Africa is fraught with danger.
Death rates are among the highest in the world and over 30 times higher than in an advanced country like Australia.

At Yotkom we have a goal to make a significant contribution to halving these death rates from their current levels of over 300 per 100,000 live births.
There is ample evidence that 80 % of these maternal and newborn deaths are preventable with the implementation of known evidenced based high impact interventions.

In Northern Uganda, Yotkom already has an established Primary Health Care facility employing over 40 Ugandan health workers and support staff where we see an average of 300 out patients per week, providing diagnostic services (laboratory and radiology ), admission facilities and orthopaedic and surgical interventions.

By donating to our expanding work, we know you can make a significant difference to the lives of women and children in Uganda.

A fund raising and awareness web site has been set up to focus on the establishment of a strong maternal and child health service at Yotkom Medical Centre in 2019.
