There are few places in the world where it’s more dangerous to be pregnant and give birth. The biggest threat; malaria.
Together with a passionate local team we (through our charity Nema) are doing our best to improve the odds.Last week these 45 expectant mothers all took part in malaria workshops and received a mosquito net. Hopefully all 45 babies will enter the world safely and we look forward to meeting them in the not so distant future.
Our health projects have been a great success over the years, focusing on preventable diseases such as malaria, HIV, malnutrition and waterborne diseases. We are now working with the local government to improve the healthcare available in the region. So far we have completed the construction of a Health Post in Guludo village and there are more, very exciting projects on the horizon. Watch this space!!
