Start of the project
So this is what happened first: On 22nd of December 2019 the Katete Quads were successfully delivered at St Francis’ Hospital.
The four babies were delivered through Lower Segment Caesarean Section (LSCS) at 09 40hours by a team Doctors from Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Doctors from Pediatrics were on hand to assess the babies. The Doctors included volunteer Doctors from United Kingdom. The four babies were three females and one male weighing 2400g, 1800g, 1780g and 2000g.
The mother is married and has three other children. The family is involved in peasant farming with no other source of income, in other words the family has no sustainable means of providing for the children.
It is for this reason that the hospital asked to assist in a fundraiding project ‘Let the children live- PROJECT Qfour’.
