In the last two years the hospital has been able to upgrade part of the facilities, due to very welcome, and very necessary assistance from donor organisations.
MATERNITY & NEONATAL CARE
The biggest department of Mua Mission Hospital is currently under complete renovation, thanks to the assistance of KFW Germany. From the early stages of pregnancy to the under-five clinic, mothers and children are cared for. With limited means but with dedication and love, child mortality rate is very low.
This ward is for children from the age of 2. Most common cases are severe malaria, malnutrition, meningitis and pneumonia. Per month between 140 and 185 children are admitted here. The paediatric ward has recently been fully renovated, thanks to the financial assistance of KinderMissionsWerk from Germany.
A new theatre has been built with the assistance of KFW Germany. It has state of the art equipment in the two operation rooms.
The laboratory has also been renovated. Thanks to donations from KFW Germany the laboratory is now able to diagnose all common illnesses. Patients do not have to be referred any more to other hospitals on this account. Patients can be treated immediately, and do not have to travel (many patients do not have the financial means to travel to other hospitals).
In August 2019 a new borehole has been drilled, in September 2019 a new pump installed, through the assistance of Formidable Joy. Shortages of water, making it necessary for the hospital to go and fetch water at the village boreholes, are now in the past, making a huge difference to the workload.
The general male and female wards are in dire need of renovation. In September 2019 Manos Unidas Spain has decided to fund the renovation of these wards. Under construction as soon as the renovation of the labour ward has been brought to completion.
