A non-governmental organisation (NGO), Mamaye E4 Action, has begun a sensitisation campaign in Kaltungo local government area in an effort to reduce maternal and child death rural areas in Gombe state.

 

Its Country Director, Mr. Tunde Segun, who was represented by the campaign’s Lead Advocate, Fola Richie Adewusi, disclosed this yesterday in Kaltungo town, saying the campaign organised by Mamaye “is timely in ensuring that both women and children are free from maternal deaths.”

 

“Maternal death of women and children under 5 has been a serious issue in the society, and there is the urgent need to support the programme to reach out to communities who are yet to be sensitised on maternal death on women and children to do so,” she said.

 

Also speaking, the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Kennedy Ishaya, who was represented by the Director, Hospital Services, Dr. James Madi, thanked Mamaye for the gesture.

 

Commending Mamaye for its laudable achievements in the state, the Chairman, Kaltungo local government area, Hon. Abubakar Danzaria, who was represented by the secretary to the local government, Mrs. Doris Samson, appreciated the NGO’s gesture to those communities.
