Nnadozie foundation contributes to the reduction of maternal and infant mortality in Nigeria with our Safety, Health and Empowerment project (S.H.E).
Every 10 minutes, one woman dies on account of pregnancy or childbirth in Nigeria-
UNICEF. This project tackles the problem of maternal and infant mortality in rural parts of Nigeria by providing; clean delivery kits containing essential sterilized items which ensure a hygienic delivery. The kit contains items such as; absorbent delivery mats, sterilized hand gloves, antiseptic liquid, cord ties and more.
Beneficiaries also receive treated bed nets to protect from malaria, blood pressure checks and pregnancy health training to inform and increase post/antenatal attendance, immunization, hospital delivery and hygienic delivery practices.

“This project has really restored my hope, I have been worried about how to raise money for my delivery items. I know it is unsafe to be so worried during pregnancy, but I really did not know what to do. With the lessons I have learnt and this kit I have received from Nnadozie foundation, I am now relaxed and confident to have my baby.”
Mrs. Ngozi. O.
“I lost my husband few weeks into this pregnancy and I have been completely devastated. I did not realize that this had affected my blood pressure, until the nurse checked me today. I want to thank you for caring about us. I have learnt how to take better care of myself and hopefully I will visit the health centre for antenatal care. Thank you Nnadozie foundation”.
“I had my last child at home because we could not afford hospital delivery. I did not even have most of these items given to me today. I now realize that I expose my baby and self to danger by giving birth in unclean environment. By God’s grace if I can raise some money, I will register in a hospital for my delivery.”
