You are welcome again to 2023. This year, we have a lot of projects and campaigns that will be unfolded in due course. Our first project for the year is tagged 20smilesfor20years in collaboration with Mrs Abe Tade as her commitment to humanitarian work. This month was used to put several plans in place for our launch and other programs that we have slated for the upcoming months.
All our babies are doing great and we are in constant touch with them to ensure that they are thriving. We are also expecting our last baby from the 2022 program to be born in February.
Our collaboration with the Hospital Management Board, specifically the Mother and Child Hospital Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria has yielded positively so far. We have helped 6 women with histories of infertility, recurrent miscarriages and stillbirths have their healthy babies through the medical expertise of the Hospital paid for by the Foundation. The Hospital has helped us immensely with investigations and also assisted greatly in providing quality healthcare that can be obtained for the new mothers, babies and other pregnant women that are still in our program. They are also committed to helping us take care of the pregnant women that we will be taking on this year.
We are focusing on our project 20smilesfor20years and beneficiaries’ welfare and health as well as on getting more women to provide the needed help to. We are also determined to raise more money as our beneficiaries require special and oftentimes more expensive healthcare and diet compared with other pregnant women. We will be focusing more on fund raising through walkathons, donations, and sales of products this year to provide the needed funds for the pregnant women we will be taking on.
We are gearing up to welcome more babies and all Hospital essentials have been made available. We are hopeful for 23 or more babies before the year ends
Our aim is for better collaboration with our health care providers and to partner with organizations and individuals that help to further the goals of the foundation.
