Years of impactful Maternal-Child Health in Uganda
After working 43 years as a general practician in Norway, Ph.D. Soen Eng Yap wanted to do something meaningful in Africa. She met Finn Edvardsen, who loves Uganda and took her to this country in 2013. Together they started organization “Mother and Child Uganda” in 2014, registered in “Brønnøysundregistrene”. The aim is to improve mother and child health in Uganda. Our main sponsor is Norwegian Women Health Organization in Nesbyen.
Midwife Anne Kari Kristiansen joined us the year after. For the first two years from 2015 until 2017, we cooperated with Nyenga Organization in Jinja.
Ph.D. Torunn Stangeland joined us later on. She connected us with Bishop Stuart University. Lions Club has been our sponsor from 2018 until 2021. Our private retired friends are our sponsors.
