Bukedea: Two mothers who were the first to give birth at Speaker Annet Among Anita Teaching Hospital have been rewarded with babies’ basic materials.

On January 15, 2024, the Bukedea Teaching Hospital was officially opened for its first inpatients and outpatients.

Among the mothers, one, Sharon Atai, who gave birth to the baby girl, is a native of Kotiok parish in Kabarwa Sub County in Bukedea district.

Debora Apolot, a resident of Kakere in Kocheka sub county, also gave birth to a baby boy at the same hospital.

Each received one bar of white soap, a basin, and a jerican after being delivered at no cost.

“I never expected this because it’s my first time in this hospital. I have delivered at no cost, and I was also given the mama kit,” said Ms. Atai.

Siporah Akol, Speaker Among’s personal assistant, told that the umbrella of the Anita Foundation is set to reward the first one hundred expectant mothers who deliver at Anita’s hospital.

“The right honorable speaker directed us to offer free maternity services to all bukedea women, and she also delivered some items to support mothers after delivering,” said Akol.

Ms. Agnes Mugena, the Bukedea teaching hospital administrator, says 81 expectant mothers have been enrolled, of whom two have given birth.
