The hand that rocks the cradle is
the hand that rules the world.

She’s a Hero
In 2019, Jungle Medical Missions initiated a two-dimensional maternal child health program. “She’s a Hero” (Omukyala Muzira) is purposed to support underprivileged mothers throughout antenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum care to mitigate the 3 delays and thereby reduce the Maternal Mortality rate in Uganda.
We work with the local community leaders who help us to identify those in dire need and our team conducts random home visits to assess the livelihood of potential beneficiaries. Potential beneficiaries must be in the lowest household wealth quantile as stipulated by the national demographic and health survey, 2016.
We pay special attention to victims of rape, defilement and domestic violence. Once recruited, we provide all the medical support throughout pregnancy and for the new-born till 6 weeks when they receive the second routine immunization.
