As a youth Led organization , the young people working here are becoming innovative by the day, reading up, creating new ideas on how to improve the well being of mothers and children in Nigeria.
TFCH has introduced Miso and Chlohexidine gel in the Clean birth kits which are also given out free .We are excited to announce that TFCH and Medicaid Radio-diagnostics Abuja are first to introduce chlohexidine gel in Kebbi state. This life saving medication is used for treatment of cord infections and its given out free alongside the Clean birth kits.
