SOGUNRO

04/11/2021 Sogunro and Oko agbon The sky is blue, the sun is rising and the wind of the morning is blowing, this happens to be the state of the weather of Lagos this morning as the team set out to our locations for our routine Antenatal, immunization, and family planning unit. Today is an exceptional clinic day for the Sogunro community and environment as the team will be running tests for HIV, Hepatitis, and Blood group concurrently with the routine clinic. Applaudably the Soungro’s women are always awaiting our presence every month in an orderly manner of assigning numbers to themselves even before our arrival which is a positive response towards health care and healthy living. We attended to 14 pregnant women for our Antenatal clinic, 27 children in the Immunization clinic, 2 women at the Family planning clinic, and tested 31 women.

MAKOKO COMMUNITY

Although we had to wait an hour to allow the rain to subside, the team still navigated their way down to our usual outreach place, Methodist Church Makoko.

Communities usually have various persons whose words usually have a great impact on the life of their members & followers; A Pastor is one of such persons and we are glad that these pastors have been an accomodating contact person always helping us to influence their members.

We beam with hopefulness and joy anytime we see newborn babies being brought for their at-birth immunization shots, this is to show that we gradually closing up the gap.

One of our mission at the Alabiamo Foundation is to see that Maternal mortality and morbidity in Nigeria is greatly reduced. Today, we visited Ikorudu, particularly the Ajegunle community. Ten expectant mothers attended the Ante-natal clinic. The is one of our new communities and we are glad that gradually “Alabiamo” is becoming a known name among the mothers.
