"Serving, without discrimination, those in a pregnancy related crisis"
A lady, four months pregnant visits the Centre for help and advice: she doesn't have the support of a family, or a husband to help care for her baby. She is considering her options regarding the baby.
This could be the story of many women whose lives have been changed at the Pregnancy Care Centre. The project's primary aim is to offer counselling and practical help to expectant mothers. PCC also offers pregnancy testing and advice on STDs to clients - many of whom are teenagers and/or victims of rape or abuse.
Another part of our ministry is awareness work in the local communities. Staff from the centre regularly go into local secondary schools to teach about issues such as teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS and to motivate students to be forward-looking in their decision making.
In addition, gender empowerment talks are given to women's groups in the local communities, talking about their rights as women, and the government services available to them when facing crises.
The Centre does not charge its clients, and relies on the support of donors. If you would like to make a donation, please contact us.
