Maternal and Child Health
The Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation provides intervention in the form of building fully equipped Primary Healthcare Centres (PHC) in rural areas to improve the access of indigent pregnant women and children to quality maternal and child health care services. The centres are subsequently handed over to the community and local government health authorities to provide appropriate staffing and running of the facility in line with acceptable standards.
Presently the Foundation has constructed and fully equipped PHCs in Delta, Nasarawa and Imo state. The Foundation looks to partner with the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) for technical assistance to enable it broaden its scope of intervention.
At The Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation, it is our vision that in the coming years, with the government’s effort and that of NGOs like ours, Nigeria would have achieved its target of the millennium development goals and reduced to the barest minimum, maternal and under-5 mortality rates.
