In WHARC’s effort to contribute to the reduction of maternal mortality, WHARC trains traditional birth attendants at Evbonogbon in Orhionmwon local government area Edo State, Nigeria.In continuation of the project aimed at contributing to the reduction of maternal mortality in Orhionmwon Local Government Area, WHARC undertook the renovation of Oligie-Ottah PHC which at the onset of the program was in a state of infrastructural decay, with leaking roofs, broken doors and windows etc. In fulfilment of the objective to improve facilities for implementing maternal health services, WHARC sought for and obtained a discretionary grant to embark on the renovation of the PHC to make it more comfortable and safe for both staff and clients of the PHC.

The renovated PHC was commissioned on February 22 2013, by the representative of the Commissioner for Health and was witnessed by the Enogies and members of Oligie and Ottah communities respectively, local government officials, PHC staff, representatives of civil society , management and staff of WHARC. The renovation of the PHC galvanised the National Primary Health Care Development Agency(NPHCDA) to provide a solar powered borehole for the health centre to improve water supply.
Following the renovation of the PHC, extensive public health education was carried out to raise awareness on maternal health and solicit increased utilisation of the PHCs in the project communities namely, Oligie- Ottah, Evbonogbon and Urhonigbe communities respectively.

Evidence has shown that there has been an increase in antenatal attendance and utilisation of the health centres by community members.
Also, staggered trainings were held in three days for a total of thirty -seven Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) in the three project communities . The training centred on Health Education courses providing basic information and skills to Traditional Birth Attendant (TBAs) empowering them to apply safe delivery methods and prompt referral in cases of emergency such as prolonged labour to save the lives of both mother and child.

    My hopes partially came true a year ago mulberry replica handbags when Dost Mohammad and Saleem started playing with us. Dost’s family came to Lahore more than a 100 years ago from Mohmand Agency, while Saleem arrived toms outlet recently from Mardan and works in the clothing industry.Saleem, a young inside-forward, moves elegantly, with the ball glued to his feet. Pushing him off replica handbags or running him into a cul-de-sac are the best ways to stop him. But when he is in midfield, he passes the ball to me and we play replica miu miu handbags a one-two to set each other off on attacking runs.
