Following the success of the #MaternalMonday antenatal classes held by the Wellbeing Foundation Africa (WBFA) at the IDP Camp Wassa Abuja, in commemoration of the International Migrants Day, WBFA announces its intention to extend its routine antenatal curriculum Class to expectant mothers at other IDP Camps. This initiative was inspired by WBFA’s Founder – President, Her Excellency, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, who is also the Inaugural Goodwill Ambassador of the International Confederation of Midwives, an alliance of midwives associations from over 100 countries. Having assessed the outcome of the initial antenatal class conducted at the IDP Camp in Wassa Abuja, Mrs. Toyin Saraki expressed her concerns about the heightened level of risk that pregnant women and their newborns face at the camps, due to malnutrition and overcrowded living conditions.
