The Kwara State location of Development Africa (Family Care’s) Maternity Referral center, has been completed. There was a significant difference in topographical level across the project site and this is evidence in the adjustments that have been made to the typical design to accommodate these differences.
Each of the three locations has solar power installed enough to take care of most of its small power and lighting needs. In addition, there are solar-powered water heaters installed in each of the three locations.
One of the primary focuses of these projects is to work towards the reduction of infant and under-five mortality as well as improve pre- and post-natal care to mothers and infants in rural and semi-rural areas.
