Advancing Maternal and Child Health in Jigawa State with our 4th program

On May 21, 2024, at Gabari Primary Health Care in Hadejia, Jigawa State, we proudly hosted our fourth program under the Jigawa Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health (MNCH) Project. This initiative continues to support healthier families within the community.

Event Overview
The day began at 9:00 AM with an opening session led by our dedicated SLNI team, setting a collaborative tone for impactful discussions and support. Expectant mothers and fathers participated in engaging sessions on:

  • Nutrition
  • Exclusive Breastfeeding
  • Immunization
  • Family Planning
  • Kangaroo Mother Care

These topics empowered parents with essential knowledge and tools for maternal and child well-being.

Key Participants
The program featured contributions from Mallam Bala, Hauwa Ayuba, Midwife Aisha Yunusa, and other team members, who facilitated comprehensive health education.

Support and Resources
We provided essential birthing kits and nutritional supplements to promote safe and healthy deliveries. Additionally, expectant mothers with potential complications were referred for free ultrasound scans at Hadejia General Hospital, sponsored by the T.Y. Danjuma Foundation and Rotary Club.

The success of this program highlights the collaborative efforts of the Silver Lining for the Needy Initiative, furthering our commitment to improving maternal and child health in the region.
