NGO Hero 2015: Toyin Saraki’s Wellbeing Foundation Africa Named as NGO Hero by The Guardian UK Global Development Professionals Network!

Toyin Saraki

Highlighting Mrs. Toyin Saraki’s courageous act of turning her personal experience of perinatal child loss into the transformational and life-saving Wellbeing Foundation Africa (WBFA), an organization committed to reducing and eliminating preventable maternal and child deaths through advocacy and implementation of innovative interventions, The Guardian UK Global Development Network (GDN)has named WBFA as one of the favourite NGO Heroes of 2015. Having reviewed over a hundred nominations submitted by the general public, the GDN selected a few, which it shared in an article published on its online platform.

Commending WBFA for its phenomenal work in bringing best-practice models to Kwara State, in north-central Nigeria, including the development and distribution of client-held personal health records (PHRs), and a partnership with Johnson & Johnson (JnJ) and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) to deliver emergency obstetrics and newborn care ‘skills and drills’ training which aims to lower maternal mortality by up to 20%, WBFA emerged alongside other important players such as Medical Aid for Palestinians in Gaza; Barefoot Lawyers – Uganda; and Christian Aid UK, to mention a few

This nomination is one that is acknowledged by WBFA and will primarily serve as a source of encouragement towards increasing our efforts in the fight to save more lives, and empower women and adolescent girls through innovative, tested and proven solutions/interventions.
