MaterCare’s mission is to serve the "Culture of Life" where it is most at risk – those crisis areas and hotspots where mothers and their children are the most vulnerable.
MaterCare USA would like to thank all of our supporters for making the purchase of the two motorcycle ambulances possible. The motorcycle maternity ambulances, funded and purchased by MaterCare USA, are essential for reaching remote areas to access mothers in need of care. their children, born and unborn, are neglected or abandoned outright.
"These vehicles are much cheaper to operate and maintain than the 4X4 ambulance but are only for short haul pickups from villages relatively close to the main hospital. They are specially designed motorcycles for the transport of pregnant women. One will be brought to Merti, and the other will stay near Isiolo. We hope to purchase more in the future when funds become available," remarked Simon Walley, Project Manager for MaterCare International.
Current Appeal: MaterCare USA is currently fundraising for manyattas (small hut-like buildings) for the St. John Paul II Hospital in Isiolo, Kenya. These structures will house women who are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy who need to be relocated nearer to the hospital to receive immediate medical attention in the event of an emergency.
The estimated cost for these structures is $15,000 per building. Consider donating to MaterCare USA to help us ensure these women get the care they so urgently need. Read more >>
