No maternity care for the community of Motlhabe

Community Alerts/Lentswe Buda/Motlhabe-Rustenburg/22/09/2018

On September the 6th 2018 the Motlhabe local clinic arranged a meeting with the community to inform them that the clinic will no longer be providing with maternity care and they should go to the Moses Kotane Local hospital which is the nearby hospital and it is about 35ks from Motlhabe, if not the Moses Kotane Local hospital they can get help at Mabieskraal clinic and both require a referral letter from Motlhabe clinic. This issue affects the community as a whole but mostly pregnant woman because if you don’t have a car or all your relatives have no access to a vehicle you will have to hire a vehicle that will transport you to the hospital which requires money. This issue could lead to possible loss of lives. It is all the Local department of health responsibilities to help communities access such basic service. By Lentswe Buda
