 A joyous atmosphere as groups of pregnant women received packs of delivery consumables. This forms part of the project implementation strategy to make access to professional services during pregnancy a priority to ]the Rural economically disadvantaged women. Health education and other antenatal care services are also part of the program. One of the beneficiaries, Mrs R.O who disclosed that she had her two previous birth at a herbal home, explained how inability to purchase necessary birthing consumables is a major reason why she has not been using hospital services. She is however grateful for this great privilege. Many other participants also shared similar experience with that of Mrs R.O.
Free antenatal services with birthing commodities has proven effective in encouraging women of low economic background to access professional services during pregnancy. This has contributed to reduction in global burden of child birth complications and maternal mortality. We are glad to see you as a key player in this great achievement! Together we are making the world a better place for all. Your relentless support will enable us make provision for more.

With living conditions getting harder, people seek alternatives to escape from the dastardy effects. This is not excluding a poor pregnant woman who seeks a cheaper means of receiving treatment during pregnancy and delivery. Sadly, the journey doesn't usually end as joyously as expected for these group. Bridging the gap remains the Organization's objective of this project. Hundreds of women of poor economic background have been positively impacted,  despite the meagre resources this project has been able to raise. 

One of our latest beneficiaries is Mrs A. She is a young woman who had lost several pregnancies to ignorance of seeking care from unprofessional caregivers. She became aware of our project facility and decided to give it a try. She was cared for at the centre, and finally gave birth to a healthy baby boy. No complications on both the mother and the baby. During interaction, she regretted having patronize the unskilled attendants. 

Many more local women still suffer discreetly. Reaching out to them is directly dependent upon availability of funds and other resources. We appeal for more generosity from you and your networks. Every donation takes us to the poor women and their unborn children. You will be proud to be part of this project!

It was a mouth watering day for about 60 pregnant women in Iseyin community, at our project centre. Oak Rural Health Organization has taken the bull by the horn to ensure that there is drastic reduction in pregnancy related maternal and child mortality. Poverty has been identified as a major contributing factor which made majority of the women to patronize unskilled birth attendants, consequently leading to sudden loss of lives. 

During a brief interaction with one of the beneficiaries who is a mother of two, she said  she has never had any hospital delivery experience, though she lost one of her pregnancies at an undisclosed place where she used to go for her pregnancy care. This is due to the fear of hospital charges, especially the delivery commodities. But, she is happy to be provided with the delivery consumables this time. This encouraged her to come to the hospital for her antenatal care. This woman is just one of the few lucky ones who happened to be alive. Oak Rural health Organization is busy working to ensure that we bridge the gap of poverty, which is a critical factor in making women access professional antenatal services. 

Every donation to this project is directly preventing needless mortality in our communities. Your continuous support will enable us to reach more women and lure them to accessing a better pregnancy care and give them a safer delivery.

Maternal mortality remains an avoidable incidence of reckoning among the vulnerable women. Poverty, illiteracy and cultural beliefs remain the lead predisposing factor among the population we serve. Despite stakeholders' efforts in curbing the unfortunate menace which is regrettably not recieving enough attention in this era of COVID19 pandemic. 

Oak Rural Health Organization has been able touch lives and helped majority of these women with essential commodities and care needed for a healthy mother and child. Most recent of our breakthrough is a case of Mrs F.A., she is a multigravidar with poor obstetric history. She lost her previous termed pregnancy to poor management in an undisclosed facility. She got aware of our ongoing project and decided to give it a try. She attended her ANCs as at when due and never missed any of her medications. Mrs F.A had a bouncing baby girl at term with no perinatal complications. 

This project has managed to survive on a very low resources, we humbly solicit supports and donations from our kind hearted donors. This will enable us reach more vulnerable groups and keep both the mother and child alive.

Oak Rural Health Organization continues to make progress in our efforts to contribute to global reduction of maternal and child mortality. This is done by ensuring every Rural and vulnerable pregnant woman has access to efficient prenatal and post natal care. We engaged in activities that encourage the women to be able to afford the professional services regardless of their economic background. 

Fatoyin is one of our numerous beneficiaries who got delivered of a bouncing baby girl recently. She had her first baby at a traditional birthing home. She is one of the clients who were mobilised for the project and hence, was booked for antenatal care for her subsequent pregnancy at our project center where she was duly cared for. "I am so glad to have this baby in the hospital, this makes it easy to access professional care and you are sure you are in save hands in case of emergency "  she said during an interaction with one of our team members. She further said she will like to have more babies in the hospital.

This project is specifically designed for women of low economic background. Even in our very low resourced settings, we are still achieving the goal of getting more women to patronize professional child birth services. This would not have happened without your generous donations. We are proud to have you with us. Giving more to this project will enable us to reach more women and prevent more birth related maternal and child mortality.
