In 2012 The Morris Moses Foundation, embarked on an ambitious campaign to improve the conditions at the Pumwani Hospital by implementing the Patient Centered care model.
The main objective of the campaign dubbed Save the Cradle was to raise funds from the Private Sector to rehabilitate and support the Pumwani Maternity Hospital, the aim being to assist the hospital to enhance its capacity to deliver affordable high quality medical services. The funds raised would be used to refurbish the hospital in 3 phases:
– Phase one: Refurbishment of the Hospitals key infrastructure
– Phase Two: the Intensive Care
– Phase three: Constructing a new wing at the hospital
- Committed funds to rewire and renovating the New Born Unit.
- Staff completed painting the antenatal clinic on the 21st & 28th June 2013

Prior to Launch these were some of our partners who were ready to be involved.
Work was done to repair the hospitals borehole. Unfortunately the main pump unit was irretrievable and a new borehole would have to be sunk.
This was crucial as the hospital went for days without Council water and had to ship water in at the last minute in tankers. The taps were often running dry.
A new Borehole was not sunk and to this day we are not sure if this is still the case.
At this time a Perimeter Fence was also erected surrounding the Hospital. This was crucial for security.
Patient Centred Care Training
This was booked and ready to run, unfortunately at the last minute the Hospital backed out.
