Summary

Primary Health Care Centers in the villages (Orokam, Emoriko, Okpudu -Ogene, Agwodaba, Gurku, Emakoji) where we work among rural people are in bad condition of structure and management. It becomes more painful when a pregnant woman dies from ordinarily a preventable death on account of giving birth. The mortality rate of children under age 5 is also very high. This is where your donation comes in handy to help stop morbidity and mortality rate and a whole community is helped.

Government negligence, individual poverty, lack of skilled health workers, and timely information is largely responsible for poor health care delivery in the communities.
