TESTIMONIALS

I am SP Odongo Samuel, District Police Commander of Namayingo district. As police, we have been receiving many cases from communities and families. Women and men accusing each other of witchcraft due to suspicions, they could believe that their sons and daughters being born with birth defects and the related disabilities and others dying is due to traditional practices by others they could suspect.
They end up having grudges amongst themselves. We are very happy now because such cases of birth defects myths have really reduced in this district. Communities are now aware of the clear information on the causes of birth defects. And because of Infants’ Health Foundation even people know the risks and preventions of birth defects. Thank you very much Infants’ Health Foundation for your work and keep it up.

Odongo Samuel,

Police Commander

My name is Nandera Christine, 24 years old from Namayingo District, When I got pregnant for our first baby I experienced a lot of complications and problems; I felt sick with high fever regularly, had lower abdominal pain with some bleeding and shortness of breath, sometimes I would not feel the baby turning, my husband and I always consulted my mother in law who is a traditional birth attendant. My mother in law would always give me herbal medicine, sitting me in a container of herbal medicine, inserting certain herbs in my private parts. When it came for giving birth I delivered normally but the baby was too small with everything on her so tiny and she stayed on earth for only 3weeks and later died. Am really impressed with Infants’ Health Foundation about their teachings showing us the mistakes we do every day that in the end affect our children and I believe the same mistakes I did I will never do them again and will always seek services from their nurses when I get pregnant.

Olimi Collins

Father

I am Olimi Collins, my wife produced a child and the doctor told us he had a brain damage and will have limitation and difficulties while growing and will not be like other children, however, we have gone through a lot of trouble in this village because of this child, people say we are cursed and evil agents, neighboring homes do not allow their children to come to our home they say they will also be affected. When Infants’ Health Foundation came in our community and started teaching families, community people changed their attitude towards us. We are so happy at heart because now we associate freely with other community members. Even now the kids play together for sure which have never happened.

Beatrice

Mother

My name is Beatrice, I would like to talk on behalf of the mothers in Bubooko village, for sure Infants’ Health Foundation has simplified the struggle for the painful search for maternal health care services, with the friendly nurses they have brought nearer to provide the maternal services within our homes, we are no longer stressed of walking long distances, and we have more time to do our house work than in those days where we could spend the whole day at the health facility and sometimes coming back unattended to.

Tabuu

Famer

My name is Tabuu, I am a farmer of millet and soya. I am so grateful for the God given opportunity of Infants’ Health Foundation. The middle men have been stealing us in broad day just and we did not have what to do. This organisation buys our product at fair prices, actually it doubles the prices of middle men. Us farmers, we are so grateful, our sweat can now bring us much happiness and courage to invest back in farming. I now count agriculture as my job at least.

Farmer

I am privileged for the opportunity that Infants’ Health Foundation has given to us farmers, buying our products from our homes and at a good price. We no longer move miles in search for market.

I am celebrating because of Infants’ Health Foundation, because of the prices they bought our
maize, we managed to invest and plant more acres.

Resident

Without Infants’ Health Foundation I would have spent all my life burning & selling charcoal at a very lower price for survival. I am now earning since I buy the raw materials from farmers for fortified porridge for Infants’ Health Foundation. Thank you please, thank you very much, thank you Infants’ Health Foundation, thank you and thank you. I now look like a person also. I can buy clothes, afford sandals also, thank you.

Residents

Thanks to Infants’ Health Foundation for their maternal health radio talks, we have learnt a lot in maternal and child health care and we also spread the news and information to others. We are so lucky. I didn’t know even that we have to plan before getting pregnant. “Agnes laments”
