As an advocate for children we always want the best for them. So protecting the children’s Right to good health Means also protecting their Mothers health .It has been estimated that lots of mothers in Nigeria are dying due to lack of awareness on medical check up such as BREAST/ CERVICAL CANCER. The World Health Organization has linked various health conditions during pregnancy to low birth weight and impaired brain development etc. Ensuring that children grow up in healthy homes, a healthy family is one of the most important steps we can take to help them thrive.
Our goal is to promote a healthy Mind and Body to women and youths in communities. To put our mission into action, the foundation held a health screening and symposium to instill awareness on BREAST/CERVICAL CANCER.
A growing body of research is affirming the positive relationship between women’s rights to good health and children’s rights to good health for their survival and the fact that healthy mothers create healthy homes and healthy children.
ICCF screened 200 women and youths on BREAST/ CERVICAL CANCER in Lafiaji community, Lagos Island.
