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 has constructed a maternity hospital in Isiolo. The newly operating MaterCare maternity hospital in Isiolo, Kenya may be the first hospital in the world to be named after the Pope John Paul II after Pope Francis proclaimed him a saint on Sunday, April 27th, 2014. The hospital, which serves rural women and children, has been operating since 2013. The number of patients being cared for at the hospital continues to grow, from 1,850 patients over the age of 5 in 2013 to 3,535 patients over the age of 5 in 2014.
