Following a visit to Pakistan in February 2014, medical equipment was purchased to fully kit out the maternity unit. This included some 27 items including a delivery – coach, bed, baby heart monitoring set, oxygen bottle/cylinder unit and various light surgical apparatus.
In order to provide night cover and to accommodate nurse, phase 2 development building works were initiated. These additional two rooms with en-suite bathroom, are being built adjacent to the maternity unit.
Although, the maternity unit is providing essential additional medical storage for Polio vaccination, the local community is being encouraged to use the facilities. Various incentive schemes are being devised for women from very poor households including a one of small financial gift, baby clothes, powder milk etc.
