Wellbeing Foundation Africa Marks Armed Forces Remembrance Day Nigeria - Provides Mamacare Antenatal-Postnatal Care And Counsel To Armed Forces Wives Nationwide

On Armed Forces Remembrance Day, Wellbeing Foundation Africa's Toyin Saraki has saluted the honour, courage, sacrifice and dedication of our nation's Armed Forces, the men and women who have dedicated their lives in protecting our country and its citizens.



"Despite the insurgency that our country has faced in the Northeast, the Nigerian Armed Forces, with the Federal Government’s support, has remained steadfast in maintaining peace and safety in our country, commendably."

"As we remember our fallen heroes, we equally recognise the plight of veterans that return from active service injured and scarred from the battlefield . We should do more to support our men and women veterans to re-enter society and their home communities successfully through training, counseling and education programs to help them become more employable and be more open minded in accepting them for jobs."

Speaking about her foundation's efforts to support armed forces pregnant wives and families, Mrs Saraki who was joined by Wellbeing Foundation's Midwifery Programs Director Felicity Mapuhire-Ukoko added:

"As our Wellbeing Foundation Africa's Mamacare Midwives deliver classes at Lagos State and Kwara State based military hospitals and barracks through our MamaCare Antenatal and Postnatal Programme, we are happy to be able to deliver the WHO recommended 8 antenatal and postnatal care appointments during pregnancy, to over 350 wives each week, of the uniformed men around Nigeria, free of any charges every month, through their journey from pregnancy and beyond, and we continue to give them a health and wellbeing enhancing continuum of care and counsel, when they need it most."

"Our countrymen also should be given psycho-social counselling and support after their time in active service. Many face post-traumatic stress and depression and need professional counselling for them to heal. We must show our gratitude for their hard work, by supporting them socially, psychologically and economically."

"To our Armed Forces men and women, we are ever grateful and recognise your noble efforts. Thank you and God bless you."
