Prematurity is one of the major causes of birth defects as lack of maturity of vital organs before birth have implications on the overall development of a child.
All of birth defects impact on the overall wellbeing of children born with them and can be categorised as either neurological, physiological or a combination of both.
These defects put families in difficult situations. Given the foregoing, we signed up to be a partner on this Cause on a global level, and TBHI is one of 7 African organisations partnering for the WBDD. We shall be carrying out activities specifically geared to call on policy makers to do enough to prevent Birth Defects as well as protect the rights of persons living with birth defects.
We therefore call on organisations in Nigeria that are willing to be part of the Commemoration on March 3 to contact us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0811 662 0205 or on any of our social media platforms https://www.facebook.com/tinybeatingheart/ and @beatingtiny on Instagram and Twitter.
Brands are also encouraged to use this opportunity to project their businesses and services as entities which support the plight of children born with defects and their families.
