Georgia Gives Day is December 6th!

  

This is a chance to support your local non-profit.

  

The project "Improvement of Maternal Health - Prevention and Treatment of Obstetric Fistula" in Northern Nigeria was initiated by the Rotarian Action Group for Population & Development (RFPD), supported by 200 Rotary, Rotaract and Inner Wheel Clubs mainly from Germany and Austria and implemented by Nigerian Rotarians. The core project amounted to 1.2 M US$ and was co-financed by the German Section and Austrian Section of RFPD, by the THE ROTARY FOUNDATION, the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the AVENTIS FOUNDATION and International Association for Maternal and Neonatal Health (IAMANEH). In addition to this, it enjoyed significant support from Rotary Satellite Projects and contributions from various stakeholder groups with cash and in kind donations amounting to 1.8 M US$. It is a comprehensive approach to reduce maternal and child mortality (MDGs 4 and 5). The duration of the pilot project was from 2005-2010. In March 2010 the state governments of Kano and Kaduna took over the project and committed themselves to maintain it enhancing its positive results. This project has shown a reduction in maternal mortality of up to 60%! This year we will start a scaling up of the pilot project in southern states of Nigeria.

To give to this scaling up effort, go directly to our page at:

You can wait to donate on December 6th or go now to support our work in Maternal & Child Health and help save lives!

RFPD is not an agency of, or controlled by, Rotary International.
