In October 2015 we sent a donation of £7500 towards the building of a maternity unit in the village.
This will enable the village doctor, Joyce Ongati, to use her new skills and help avoid women in labour having to make the difficult journey to the local hospital.

The maternity unit has been built by the Uyogo villagers but the Tanzanian government’s share of this project, consisting of 20 million Tz shillings to buy equipment for the maternity unit, has not materialised. KUFL consulted a Kenilworth-based midwife to endorse the proposed list of equipment that should be purchased. Although KUFL has been assured, in February 2019, that this sum of money has been set aside for this purpose, we still await the arrival of the equipment in Uyogo.
