Project Bududa, Uganda

Per Bridge: $100
One-third of all births in the Bududa District occur at home, leading to elevated levels of mother and child mortality. One contributing factor is the difficulty of traveling to a medical facility during the night over streams and ravines. The goal of the Mama Bridge Project is to make this journey easier and safer for mothers in labor. Mama Bridges will be constructed from locally sourced timber and community labor.
Additional benefits of the bridges will include making the journey to school easier for children, make passage over streams safer for the elderly, and allow potential patients to receive treatment at the FIMRC clinic in a timely manner. Bududa District is a place with very difficult terrain. Therefore, we have an almost unlimited opportunity to construct these life saving structures for mothers, children, and the elderly.
