Featured Project: Kenya


MaterCare International in partnership with the Apostolic Vicariate of Isiolo, Kenya started Project Isiolo: a Comprehensive Rural Obstetrical Services and Training Program in February 2009 with a ground breaking ceremony and blessing. Kenya has one of the highest maternal mortality and morbidity rates in Africa. There are virtually no obstetricians, nurses, or midwives serving this vast central and northern region of Kenya where mortality rates are even higher. The purpose of the project is to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity. MaterCare International will construct a maternity hospital in Isiolo.
