Fostering Support and Connection
VSF’s Plan and Goals
Hello, and welcome to October. We want to thank you once again for your incessant support as we continue to provide financial and emotional support to pregnant women with history of infertility, recurrent miscarriages and stillbirths.
Efforts are being intensified by our program officers at sourcing and signing of new beneficiaries and these efforts are gradually yielding fruits. Last month, we signed on a new beneficiary and hosted our first annual golf tournament .Our targert this year is to provide support to twenty women through pregnancy, birth and beyond and we are confident that we will achieve this goal before the end of the year.
We welcomed two baby boys not just last month but on the same day – September 19th 2023. All our babies are thriving, and our program officers are in touch with the families to ensure that they are well fed and receiving all the nutrition they need. One of our babies clocked one year on 27th September and we celebrated him the VSF same way.
Our partnership with the Hospital Management Board, particularly with the Mother and Child Hospital in Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria, continues to be fruitful. To date, the foundation has financed medical treatments at the hospital for fourteen women who had previously struggled with infertility, recurrent miscarriages, and stillbirths, enabling them to give birth to healthy babies.
The hospital’s medical expertise and investigative support have been invaluable, and they have also been instrumental in providing high quality healthcare to new mothers and infants. Additionally, the hospital has pledged to support our efforts to care for pregnant women who will be joining our program this year.
One of our campaigns for the year is the 20smilesfor20years initiative is still very much on course. We will continue to collaborate with donors to offset the growing cost of providing support for our beneficiaries. To complement these efforts, we will be organizing more walkathons and encouraging individual campaigns.
We are intensifying efforts to cultivate more partnerships and collaborations that can assist us in advancing the foundation’s objectives. We will be sharing news later this year. Please stay with us on this journey.
