Catching them young through maternity visits

Children’s Centre celebrated World Book Day 2020 by catching them very young through visits to ante-natal & post-natal clinics. The visits began with a chance meeting of our Chair, Dr. Ngozi Osadebe, with young mothers at Akulue Memorial Hospital. The response was so enthusiastic she recognized a new direction for Children’s Centre outreach. At Akulue Memorial Hospital, University Medical Centre, UNN. Bishop Shanahan Hospital and Nsukka Health Centre, a team led by Ngozi, Elizabeth Babarinde and Evangeline Nwankwo talked with expectant and young mothers on pregnancy and childcare, as well as the importance of sharing books & reading with children, beginning with their babies. So interesting was the talk that our team was invited to come and share information & ideas every week.
