I am a wife and a mother.
I am a supporter of any good cause which was the reason I jumped at the opportunity to be a member of Tiny Beating Heats Initiative and also volunteered as coordinator of TBHI, Northern Nigeria. I heard about this initiative from the visionary herself, who is my sister and decided to key into it seeing that its a very good and of course, selfless cause which would help create awareness about prematurity; its causes, prevention and how it can be handled if it eventually occurs.
So far, it has been fulfilling. Yes, I find fulfilment in helping people who in no way can pay me back. That is what we do in TBHI.
TBHI operates in few states in Nigeria and I am the Plateau State Co-ordinator. We hold seminars in Plateau state and its environs on prematurity and other issues women have especially in pregnancy. These seminars are mostly held in rural areas where the need for ante-natal care is not considered. This has helped a lot of women as they get enlightened on what they consider not important.
We hope to widen our horizon and take this to the remotest parts of Nigeria.
Join us…. Every little beating heart counts… Lets save them.
