According to reports from the WHO and UNICEF, every single day, Nigeria loses about 2,300 children under-five year olds and 145 women of childbearing age. This makes the country the second largest contributor to the under-five and maternal mortality rate in the world.
Wuyewuye community is located in Gwagwalada Local Government Area, about 3 hours’ drive from the Abuja city center. The community lacks basic amenities such as infrastructure, potable water, electricity, and healthcare services. In its bit to contribute to the reduction of maternal mortality and infant morbidity, Livebridge Foundation team is self-funding the construction and equipment of a Medical Centre in this affected community. In addition, trainings will be provided to women as Traditional Birth Attendants (TBA) and a borehole will be provided with the assistance of Livebridge Foundation’s partners. The medical center will serve over 5000 women and children in the surrounding communities.
