Fortebet, over the weekend, extended a helping hand to 100 expectant mothers with Mama kits. The donation was given free of charge to mothers at Namatala health centre in Mbale; a centre that mostly serves the needy community of Namatala. The aid was officially handed over by Mr. John Nanyumba, Fortebet Media Manager.
According to Scola Bukusela, the assistant in-charge for maternal health, the hospital was originally designed to handle only 20 deliveries a month, but now handles at least 120 cases. “This is the reason we need as much help from everyone, just like Fortebet has done today,” Buksela said just after receiving the kits on behalf of the hospital.
Nanyumba said, “As Fortebet, we don’t want to witness loss of life of a mother or child at birth. One of the ways to avoid such deaths is by preparing adequately, and this is why we are here today. Every mother here today will go back with a kit, free of charge.”
Fortebet donated sanitation and protective gears to the hospital such as trash cans, sanitizer, detergents, and face masks.
