Les problèmes rencontrent par les femmes du territoire de MWENGA au Sud-Kivu en R D Congo
La majorité des femmes de la zone d’ITOMBWE lors d’accouchement n’ont pas d’assistance ni la maternité
Les plus grand nombres mettent au monde dans leur propre mais d’autre dans des champs entre de cultive, en cour de chemin partout certaines entre eux meurt et les nouveaux né meurt, vraiment mous les filles et les femmes sadienne nous regrettons toujours la vie de nos maman qui résidente au village,
Par manque de matérielle et des mais d’œuvre qualifié prenons le cas de la césarienne les sont opérée sans anesthésie imaginez-vous la suite de nos maman, plus elles sont plus éloignes de la ville plus l’espérance de leurs vie sont plus faible.
Après l’accouchement de la femme soit sur le champ ou dans un endroit éloigné de la maternité qu’est-ce qu’elle faite lors de la séparation de cordon ombilical de sa maman elles utilisent de morceaux de bois ou les déches de la canne à sucre ou bien même utilise les rame de rasoir sans propriété,
Sans tenir compte des risques qu’elles peuvent rencontrent durant toute leur vie.

Lack of maternity hospital in the village

The problems faced by women in the Mwenga territory in South Kivu D R Congo.

The majority of women in the Itombwe area during child delivery do not get help or have access to a maternity ward.

A large number of women give birth at home, while others do it in the fields, or along the way. Almost everywhere, some of the mothers and the newborns die; we always regret to see the life of our mothers lead in the village.

Though lack of material and skilled work, the cesarean section are performed without anesthesia, you can imagine what follows for our mothers; the further they are away from the city, the lower their life expectancy is.

After child birth, when the woman is in the fields or far from the hospital; what is she supposed to do with the umbilical cord. The women use pieces of wood or sugar cane waste or even use dirty razor blades, unaware of the risks they can encounter during their lives.
