Huffington Post: A Life-Saving Tip, From One Mother to Another
Toyin Ojora-Saraki, founder-president of the Wellbeing Foundation Africa
“… WBFA (The Wellbeing Foundation Africa) works through building advocacy/awareness, charitable funding, and community mobilization to empower mothers and families and provide them with the tools and life-skills they need to make sure no woman or child dies from complications with pregnancy or childbirth. By making these tools and practices available, such as capturing the health information of both mother and child, from the mother’s first ante-natal visit until the child turns 5 years old; and the Safe Delivery Kit that provides all the essential commodities for attending a clean birth in one bag, WBFA gives people across Africa the ability to seek better lives for themselves and for their communities and ensure that mothers can continue to change lives, every day” (3/17).
