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.
