Today Krista, one of our volunteers, went to the hospital to see the mosquito screen that was put in one of the big windows in the maternity unit. We were able to find a contractor and arrange for the installation of the new screen.
At this public hospital in la Ceiba, women stay with their baby in this unit for 24 hours or more after they have given birth. There is a big grassy area outside of this unit which does not drain well after a heavy rain and many mosquitoes grow in the puddles.
Thanks to $50 from the donations raised before Krista came to Honduras we have been able to build and install this screen to protect moms and newborns from mosquito bites and desases.
Thanks to you Krista and your community for beeing so iniative and genereous!
