Zaina: E-ranger Advocate

Nakagolo Zaina from Bugandadala (married to Twaha Megelo with seven children) went to a Traditional Birth Attendant (TBA) during her labor pains. After detecting signs of complications during the delivery, the TBA referred her to Ibulanku Health center. Zaina used a Boda-Boda to reach Ibulanku and paid 2,000 Ugandan shillings.

At Ibulanku, Zaina received maximum care from the midwife, Harriet. Harriet detected that the complications would be best handled by a higher facility, and referred Zaina to the Iganga District Hospital. Zaina was also provided with a SAFE Maama Kit (with necessary supplies for delivery), without which she couldn’t have received care at the hospital.

Zaina was recommended to use the eRanger ambulance. Isma, the trained driver, drove her along with a medical attendant to the Iganga Hospital where she successfully delivered a baby boy (Abdal Rah man Eliasa)!

Zaina praised the care and attention given to her during her labor pain and recommended the usage of the eRanger as a much safer means of transport for expectant mothers over other conventional methods.
