Providing victims of sexual abuse with medical care.

 

In Uganda, girls as young as 13 are subject to the horrors of family abuse, rape, and forced prostitution.

In a shame based culture, when the truth comes to light, these girls often find themselves homeless and in desparate need of medical care.

Pregnant, Broken, Afraid

The pandemic has left young girls trapped in their homes with dangerous predators who are abusing them at an unprecedented rate. The need is urgent as the situation grows worse every day. But our friends at The Remnant Generation are determined to intervene. They have set a goal to rescue 100 pregnant teens this year, but they need your help.

            • Saving Praise

              Our partners at The Remnant Generation recently sent us this story of rescue...

              Praise is a 14-year-old teen pregnant mom who was 36 weeks and staying at the shelter. On a given day outside her usual antenatal review days, she presented with bleeding; a condition in late pregnancy known as Antepartum Hemorrhage and on examination by the midwife at Maisha-in-house clinic, there was a low and hard to hear fetal heart.

              The midwife rushed her to Lubaga hospital Teen mom with her baby while in nursery unit where the scan showed that the placenta was covering the whole cervix, a deadly condition known as Placenta Previa grade 4. (Person can’t deliver normally with it) This called for an emergency C/Section delivery to save the life of our dear teen mom. The gynecologist had anticipated doing a total hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) due to how severe the situation looked but from theatre, he realized it could be resolved and thus this saved our girl’s uterus meaning she still has chances to carry life.

              Fortunately, she gave birth to alive baby boy. The baby weighed 2.52kgs; scored 8/10 at zero minute of life and the uterus remained intact after the operation. The baby was rushed to Nursery due to prematurity and Respiratory Distress. Nevertheless, we thank God that both the mother and the baby came out alive with the Uterus intact and nothing removed. Currently both mother and child have healed; baby is able to breastfeed outside the nasal tubes and both in a good condition and thriving well.

              • Heroes in Health

                "Lubaga Hospital has decided to take this partnership a notch higher and have opened up a special area for pregnant teenage girls, assigned particular nurses and midwives to take care of them, provided a free ambulance to come to pick them from our shelter, and capped all their fees at a very minimal amount regardless of whether it's a c-section or whether there are other complications that require further expertise.

                They will also provide a private room so the girls are shielded from the prying eyes and wagging tongues of in the maternity wards... And this is not just for the girls from The Remnant Generation, but for all the other teenage girls within the community who come to the hospital.

                Additionally, The Remnant Generation has been nominated in the Heroes In Health Awards 2020 Awards in the categories of Maternal health & child health care and Our Health Officer, Ruth Namubiru Mugenyi was nominated for Nurse of the year!"
