NGO Conducts Free Medical Screening in Yaba LCDA

A non-governmental organisation (NGO), Alabiamo Foundation, organised a free medical aid to reduce maternal and infant mortality and morbidity for residents of Yaba Local Council Development Area of Lagos State.

A source said, “We had a very handful workday at Sogunro-Pedro and Oko-Agbon Communities. Word spread amongst community dwellers about our interventions. This was possible because the women tend to respond to interventions better when there are other incentives attached like the mosquito nets and sanitary pads.

“In all we attended to 20 pregnant women with free routine antenatal drugs, routine antenatal checkup and referred them to our routine antenatal postnatal care and immunization event venues for the following day so they can be given the mandatory tetanus shot. We also distributed sanitary pads to teenage girls within the community.

We are consistently able to reach these women because of continuous support from the public through donations in kind, materials, and cash. Our ability to adapt, improvise and keep the ball rolling against all odds helped our resilience.

We were only able to carry out our community outreaches this month because of people’s commitment to our cause and we thank them for their consistency.”
