January 2023

The new maternity and neonatology ward is now operational. The delayed equipment arrived in the w/c 9th January and today, the 20th, the first baby, a girl, was born at 7.08am, weighing in at 2.8Kg (6lbs 3oz).
The mother’s name is Niyingenera Clarisse and the father Urayeneza Theoneste. The baby has been given the name Ashimwe Igeneneza, which translates as Beauty Praise. I don’t think we could have asked for a more appropriate name for the first child to be born in the new unit.
With the new maternity unit now operational and the first baby born I believe the work that Action Kibogora was set up to do is complete and this will be the final newsletter.
We will continue to support the hospital in which ever way is required and news of what is happening will continue to be posted on the web site at www.kibogora.org .
Below is a selection of the most recent photos from Kibogora.
