A small charity has a big impact

BirthRight Foundation Africa (BRFA), Mr Michael Dimeji Mivic is a Nigerian philanthropist and Real Estate, Developer. BirthRight Foundation was founded in 2016 as a result of a desire to help others and personal experience with several community outreaches executed. As the Founder-President of BirthRight Foundation Africa (BRFA) believes that poverty and cultural practices with poor and inadequate primary healthcare services influence women in Nigeria to settle for untrained traditional birth attendants, despite the serious risks involved. According to the World Health Organisation’s figures for 2022 on maternal mortality, 512 women die per 100,000 live births in Nigeria. That figure includes women who die during or within 42 days of giving birth.

Most Nigerians believe no woman should give birth by Caesarean section or clearly majority cannot afford it due to their low incomes.

Which makes most Nigerians in low income area settle for makeshift clinic and traditional homes where charges is no more than 20,000 naira to deliver a child. Despite the dangers that surround traditional births, some women prefer them to going to local medical facilities. Some say they trust traditional attendants to help them give birth without complications. For others, traditional birth attendants are simply the most affordable option. While some antenatal services are free in Nigeria, women have to pay to give birth at a medical centre. BirthRight Foundation Africa is committed to sensitising and educating women on Caesarean section with further consultations with medical professionals and also provides funds for Caesarean sections. Every mother and newborn deserves to live!.
