As part of measure to ensure that pregnant women, especially in the rural communities lead healthy lives during pregnancy, the wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari, Tuesday, distrib- uted nutritional supplements to women in some hospitals in Umuahia.
According to Mrs. Buhari, the supplements would help boost their health during pregnancy and the period of exclusive breast-feeding.
Distributing the items at the Federal Medical Centre and State Diagonistic Centre, Hajia Buhari urged them to judiciously use the nutritional milk, Frisomum Gold, and to obey other titbits of the medical personnel for adequate growth of their babies and safe delivery.
Represented by the Abia State governor’s wife, Mrs. Nkechi Ikpeazu, Mrs. Buhari stressed the need for every pregnant woman and nursing mothers to enjoy quality health.
She called on stakeholders in the health sector to join hands with government in sensitizing the grassroots people on the benefits of good medication and good nutrition for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Ogechi Chinasa and Ezinne Harbour thanked Mrs. Buhari for the gesture.
