As part of our efforts to improve Maternal and new born health in Nigeria, Traffina Foundation launched new Clean Birth Kits On the 29th of March at Sheraton Hotel and Towers Abuja.
Yes, the concepts about TFCH kits are so unique because they are given out free to pregnant women in rural communities who cannot afford to pay for the cost of delivery. Secondly this initiative is targeted at getting the Nigerian people involved in the fight against maternal and child mortality. Many people outside the health sector are not aware of the number of deaths we account daily from preventable pregnancy and delivery complications, these people outside the health sector are not aware of the role they should play to reduce the death of our dear mothers in Nigeria. Traffina Foundation believes that Nigerians have the capacity to end most of the problem facing the country rather than relying on foreign donor to do everything for us, when we make some efforts , others who have higher capacity will surely step in to support us.
It’s so amazing that some companies are beginning to adopt the clean birth kit project as part of their CSR to support the health system and also to reduce the high maternal and child mortality rate in Nigeria. We brand names of companies who have supported us on the Clean Birth Kits
You would like to know more about how we made the move towards this project, Sheraton Hotel and Towers Abuja donated their very beautiful banquet hall as part of their support to kick off the project. Indeed it was a perfect way of giving back to the society.
Many media firms in Abuja like We-106.3 FM, Brekete Family, Daily Trust, Love-FM, AIT, NTA also gave us free airtime for publicity to ensure that Nigerians are involved in this project.
The Mother of the Day, Her Excellency Hajia Amina Namadi Sambo, Wife of the Vice President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, played a very remarkable role in making this event a huge success. Her Excellency is indeed a Mother very humble to every Nigerian who comes across her, irrespective of her status she supports young Nigerians who are out to build the Nation. She has so much passion in saving the lives of mothers and babies in Nigeria. Her Excellency’s high powered entourage was led by another kind hearted woman Dr. Zainab A Bagudu , Wife of Senator Abubakar Bagudu and the founder/ Chief Executive Medicaid Radio-diagnostics.
The Unveiling of the Clean Birth kit was indeed a great event that would be in our memories for a very long time.
We say a very big thank you to all who has embarked with us on this journey to make pregnancy and delivery, a positive outcome for all Mothers, once again we say thank you for your support as we work towards our target of distributing 50,000 clean birth kits by 2015….YES WE CAN
NO WOMAN DESERVES TO DIE BRINGING LIFE TO THE WORLD
