Kachindamoto Health Center is located in Dedza East, a hot, lakeshore area in Central Malawi. The facility has a clinic, nurses’ houses, a pharmacy, and a maternity wing. The health center cannot provide maternal health services due to the unavailability of a guardian shelter and kitchen. As a way of solving this challenge, the community is mobilizing resources to construct a maternity wing's guardian shelter for the health center. This project will help eliminate challenges women face during delivery such as traveling long distances to access maternal health services. In addition, this project will help guardians have access to better accommodations in a conducive location. Once the project is complete, the health center will have all the facilities required for the Ministry of Health to certify the clinic to start providing maternal health services. It is expected that the shelter will serve more than 30 guardians per month.
