Construction of Mothers ‘Waiting Shelter at Gomola Clinic Kwekwe

Since its inception, Gomola Clinic , in Kwekwe district had no Mothers waiting Shelter, and expecting pregnant mothers were forced to travelled more than 20km by foot   to nearest facilities with the waiting shelter or hire carts when due incurring out of pocket expenses/ costs. Some experienced born before deliveries (BBAs) episodes and  due to these barrier most opted for home delivetries which put HIV positive mothers at risk of transmitting HIV to the  unborn baby

CLM team, including Deloune  Matongo  PEPFAR CLM Focal Person inspecting the Shelter in Progress

After the issue of BBAs came out during Focus Group discussions and service users’ surveys, the Community Health Advocates (CHAs) engaged the HCC and presented the issues /barrier to service uptake of long distances travelled by expecting pregnant mothers which resulted in BBAs.

Resultantly the HCC was convinced and allocated Result Based Funds to the mothers’ waiting shelter.  Notwithstanding that advocacy score, one of the CHAs mobilized her village to provide pit and riverside for the construction of the shelter.
