We are aware that hygiene is one of the preventable causes of our infant mortality rate. we hand out care bags to mothers in public hospitals that contain all the necessary toiletries to care for herself and her infant. The bag includes reading material on diarrhoea, breastfeeding, immunisation, family planning, etc. our organisation is still in the fledgling stage so we are still in the process of gathering statistics in conjunction with each hospital. we started of with one hospital but we already launched in a new hospital. our next launch will be soon which will be pregnant mothers in prison.
