15.11.2010

 

"It was a  happy event few days ago when a firstborn was the first baby delivered  at a brand new maternity unit at the hospital in Monkey Bay which ICEIDA has built up in recent years. The maternity unit is a tremendous improvement  from  previous maternity facilities, only two women in labour could be accommodated at the same time. Now we have eight birthing beds at the spacious and bright facilty that can serve a total of 24 women and their newly borns, " says Stefán Jón Hafstein ICEIDA´s Country Director in Malawi.
