Pola Long would often ask the mamas (as Massai mothers refer to themselves) what problems were encountered in child birth. She was told ‘We don’t have any problems.’ Pola thought this was rather unusual as wherever you are in the world there can be problems during child birth. It transpired that if there was a problem then both the mother and baby would die and then there would be ‘No problem’.
Following consultation with the local medical officers the Charity offered to fund the building of a dedicated Maternity Centre. It comprises of two delivery rooms, an examination room, office and waiting area. Water is provided from a local bore hole as well as the usual rainwater collection. Through the legacy of Stephen Gale a generous supporter solar lighting has also been installed.
