We are the voice for premature babies and their families in Africa.

A healthy start in life requires a healthy pregnancy beforehand. A proportion of preterm births and other pregnancy complications can be prevented by simple interventions. Quality antenatal care and a healthy lifestyle before and during pregnancy can prevent a baby from being born too soon or ill in Africa. read more …
