Baby kits improve maternal and child health in Turkana County
World Vision is contributing towards the reduction of maternal and child deaths through the distribution of Baby Aids Kits in Turkana and Elgeyo Marakwet Counties, based in Kenya. The kits contain essential items for nursing newborn infants, which enable women to take good care of their children. In health facilities where the kits are being distributed, World Vision is also supporting Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) to empower women on the importance of antenatal care visits (pregnancy check-ups), giving birth in hospitals (skilled delivery) and good nutrition in improving their well-being, as well as the health of their children. We are grateful to MFA Finland for supporting this initiative.
