Rhonda Maternity Clinic: A Beacon of Hope in Nakuru

In the heart of Rhonda, a slum community on the outskirts of Nakuru, Kenya, lies a beacon of hope for expectant mums and their newborns. The Rhonda Maternity Clinic, a public health facility facing the challenges of limited resources and funding, has undergone a remarkable transformation thanks to the unwavering support of Gennarosity Abroad.


Challenges Faced:

Rhonda, like many underserved communities, grapples with high infant and maternal mortality rates due to inadequate healthcare access. Expectant mums often lack essential prenatal care, skilled birth attendance, and access to critical medical equipment.


Gennarosity Abroad's Impact:


Recognising the urgent need for intervention, Gennarosity Abroad partnered with the Rhonda Maternity Clinic, bringing about a wave of positive change. Through their support, the clinic has witnessed:

  • A 150% increase in deliveries: From 30 to 75 deliveries per month, ensuring more mums have access to safe and skilled birth attendance.

  • A 75% reduction in external referrals: Specialised care is now available within the clinic, minimising the need to transfer patients to other hospitals. 

  • Increased antenatal care attendance: Over 290 mums now receive vital prenatal care, safeguarding their health and that of their babies.

  • Elimination of neonatal mortality: Previously reporting two neonatal deaths per month, the clinic now celebrates zero such instances, a testament to the improved quality of care.

​Gennarosity Abroad is committed to further enhancing the Rhonda Maternity Clinic's capabilities through:

  • Staff training and upskilling: Equipping healthcare workers with the latest knowledge and techniques to provide optimal care.

  • Acquisition of essential medical equipment: From anaesthesia machines to ultrasounds, ensuring the clinic has the tools needed to handle any situation.

  • Meeting critical needs: Providing necessary supplies and resources to create a safe and comfortable environment for mums and newborns.
