Happy Mothers Moment

Short description

Happy Mothers Moment is an initiative aimed at offering expecting mothers safe delivery, joyful moments of newborns.

Description

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I took an expectant mother to a public hospital within my district. While the mother delivered a bouncing baby boy within 15 minutes in the hospital, what I witnessed and experienced made cry. The mother gave birth on a bare floor, blood strewn all mover and still the mother had to buy all the materials required by the nurses from her own coffers. I recently, witnessed another mother deliver by the road side within a city suburb, in the glare of hot sun. I have been wondering and thinking; why must giving birth by mothers be that painful, unhappy and sad moment in Kenya? Even though many mothers enjoy the newborns with smiles; deep down their minds and soul lies sorrow and untold occurrences. This must not be the case. I want to change the narrative. I believe in starting small and expanding gradually. I want to establish an only mother and child care centers in the rural areas and slums of Kenya. I aim at starting with Homa-Bay County and Kibera slums in Nairobi. Join me in these efforts;

The initiative has identified a parcel of land and secured them in each of Homa-Bay County and Kibera slums locations. These areas will be used to establish and run the Happy Mothers Moment Clinics. In Homa-Bay, I have laid the foundation.

These Happy Mothers Moment Clinics target poor, vulnerable and unable women within these environments. Each mother has a right to give birth happily and as a natural process should never be regrettable.

The Happy Mothers Moment Clinics will profile, enroll, monitor and conduct regular follow ups during pre-natal and post-natal care and ensure that all of them comply to these requirements. Children born and given proper care, are able to stand strong against flu related diseases including COVID-19.

The children’s care also will be core to the Happy Mothers Moments Clinics and ensure that they start their early lives appropriately irrespective of the conditions in which the mothers are, their social statuses and economic income level.

The clinics from the onset of this initiative will take care of all the requirements for COVID-19 containment measures as a standard for future establishments irrespective of the pandemics. Mothers must feel safe and protected to deliver their babies irrespective of the global pandemics. This is what this initiative aims to achieve.

What we need help with

I have a clear roadmap on what is to be done to realize the Happy Mothers Moment initiative. It is an initiative that would ultimately be self sustaining but at the moment it has to be established. I have done some bits but I am not able to do all that is required. I need your help to bootstrap the clinic, a high level of exposure to magnify the problem and the need to address it urgently, to fully develop these Happy Mothers Moment Clinics across the country starting with two and finally finances to realize all this noble initiative. The nature of this initiative is social-enterprising and through subsidized fees for the project target group and regular costs to other members of the public; the Happy Mothers Moments Clinics will be able to stand on their own within the 3rd and 4th years of operations. I need to bootstrap this initiative now so that we save the future in the face of pandemic. I am open to discussions and way in which we can collectively bring this noble cause to reality. Resources are required yes, but when our minds and efforts are put together; greater achievements will be realized. Be part of this initiative and inscribe your name in the hearts of poor and vulnerable mothers of the rural and slum dwelling communities. Thank you.
