Lend your Voice

Compliments of the season to you and your family!

I am enjoying my holiday, i hope you are too?

I want to share this with you ….

Do you know that Poverty is man made ? I say so because i believe no one was born poor. We grow into the status of poor or rich based on the circumstances that surround us as we progress through life. This goes beyond the boundaries of material things to encompass health, knowledge, support system etc.

 

Going by the popular saying “Health is Wealth”, the wealth of a nation is measured by the health of its citizens. Only a healthy person can be productive at his enterprise whatsoever.

While most African countries have increased their budgetary allocation for healthcare to 15%, as agreed upon at the Abuja declaration, undoubtedly Nigeria is one of the countries that operates at less than 5%. This is an indicator as to why she still has a high maternal and child death rate in the region, as well as deaths caused by preventable disease despite being referred to as the Giant of Africa. While we continue to pray for the kind of change that we desire for our nation come 2017, at least we can lobby our government into doing the needful to minimize these deaths.

It begins with you and me, either actively or passively , we can contribute to this change. Let us lend our voice and join in this worthy cause to make Naija stronger. This campaign is championed by some of our entertainment industry personalities through the ONE.ORG . No matter what part of the world you are in, you are only a click away.

  1. Strong words👍 maternal and child health is indeed a strong indicator of a country’s wealth. After being opportuned to see how maternal and child health has been of immense priority to so many countries and how it has reflected on their economies, Nigeria has a very long way to go.
