Maternity Aid Program

Code Nation 1957


It is a privilege to have you onboard as we address a deeply distressing issue affecting new mothers in our communities. Imagine the joy of bringing a new life into the world, only to face the heart-wrenching reality of having your new-born taken away due to financial constraints.
This is a situation that no mother should experience. We present an opportunity to make a significant impact in the lives of these mothers, their infants and their communities as a whole.


In April 2023 we made a shocking discovery which left us heartbroken and we felt we needed to do something to help.
It was brought to our notice that many mothers who have given birth had their children taken away from them as collateral since they could not afford to pay for their medical bills after birth.
We visited the hospital to verify this information and it was shocking to see that every information was true. We saw many mothers at the hospital feeling so hopeless and in tears.
We spoke to many mothers who confirmed that their babies had been taken away from them because they could not afford to pay for their medical bills and they could only take their babies home once their bills were settled.
We went to the administration of the hospital to speak to their staff who then showed us a book with every mother's details and how much they needed to pay before taking their babies home.
We budgeted some funds for these mothers on that same day and paid for six (6) of them, who were immediately discharged to go home with their babies.
We also helped transit them into their various communities as most of them have been traumatised from the experience they had gone through at the hospital.
We ensured to visit these mothers to find out what they and their baby needs were and supported them accordingly. During our visit to these mothers, we discovered that some of them would love to get Education, Employment, Learn a new skills/ trade.
We are very much committed to help these mothers thrive . Together with your support we will be able to help many mothers.

Infrastructure Development: In the near future, the program could contribute to the development of healthcare infrastructure, ensuring better facilities and resources for maternal health services.
Educational Impact: The program will educate women, enabling them to make informed decisions about their health and family planning. Women who benefit from this support can also be educated on proper nutrition, hygiene, and care during and after pregnancy.
Economic Impact: Better maternal health can positively impact the workforce, as healthier mothers are more likely to participate in economic activities, contributing to overall economic development.
