FullSoul at a glance

FullSoul is a not-for-profit equipping hospitals in Uganda with medical supplies.

FullSoul protects the health and safety of mothers, babies, and medical practitioners during childbirth. In many parts of the developing world, including Uganda, having a baby is a dangerous process. Every two minutes a woman dies from pregnancy or childbirth complications. The reasons for this are complex, and multifaceted, but one pressing issue is that many hospitals often lack even the most basic medical supplies.

When supplies are scarce, the responsibility is placed on expectant mothers and their families. In Uganda, women must arrive to the hospital with their own supplies, including gloves, a sterile blade, a clean plastic sheet, and other items. Women arriving empty-handed have to pay for supplies or are often turned away. A shortage of supplies also means that disposable items get re-used between mothers, potentially spreading dangerous infections.
