To restore and equip women and girls affected by poverty, poor health, and gender issues by empowering them to proactively engage in personal and community transformation
Daughters of Eve Foundation believes maternal health care is a fundamental right for women. In Uganda, this is extremely difficult as women are not given access to basic medical care. Even in government hospitals, women are often turned away if they cannot pay money before entering the hospital even in the throws of labor. Sadly, many are verbally abused by hospital staff and this creates insecurities and a no-confidence situation for many expectant mothers.
DOEF is currently working with the main hospital and several health centers on the Islands in the District we work to help educate medical staff and advocate for women and girls. We are also in the process of renovating a building which will be our new birthing house where we will offer on-site laboratory services (testing and treating HIV/AIDS and other STDs), full antenatal and postnatal care services, reproductive health clinics, and a teen health and wellness program.
