INCREASING ACCESS TO SAFE BIRTHING

MATERNITY PACKS INITIATIVE

During 2017, Alola continued its maternity pack project providing clothing for newborn babies and other essential materials for the mother.  It has realized that providing mothers with basic needs is a worthwhile support to increase number of birth to health care settings. There were 290 packs distributed among several Community Health Centers in Aileu, Liquica and Baucau municipality.
