The latest publication of UNICEF 2022 states that in Nigeria there are 56.220 child deaths per 1000 live births and 576 maternal mortalities per 100,000 live births! The Obijackson Women and Children Hospital has a fully functional maternal and neonatal intensive care unit with the ability to provide care to preterm and growth restricted newborn babies. Our partnership has provided subsidised maternal and child healthcare to patients from poor families over the past 8 years.
In the past 5 years in partnership with the hospital, we have organised the Eye screening programs, HIV/AIDS education, Breast cancer and Hepatitis B awareness campaigns.
We also hold a female sanitary awareness campaign across various secondary schools themed the “One girl, One Pad” program. We actively engage female students in rural communities about their feminine health and hygiene and donate sanitary pads to them.
