HEART 4 NIGERIA
4B4L is a non-profit organization with a focus on fighting infant and maternal mortality in low resource countries. Our current focus is on Nigeria which has the second-highest maternal and infant mortality rate in the entire world. Many of these deaths are actually preventable. There are clear reasons why these unfortunate statistics exist and our goal is to make this a thing of the past. More than 700 babies die daily in Nigeria, of which a significant number of these deaths are due to birth asphyxia - an inability of the newborn to initiate breathing after birth. Countless babies are labelled as stillborn though they are still alive.
