The Ivory Foundation supported the “Afghanistan Libre” association in a project aimed at improving maternal and child health in rural areas in the districts of Paghman and the Panshjir province (Afghanistan).

This project aimed to contribute to the improvement of women’s and their young children’s health through a program of health and medical support. It included the monthly visit of a midwife to enhance access to healthcare services. Additionally, the objective was to strengthen health knowledge through courses focusing on family health and hygiene on a daily basis.

By providing regular support (three times a week), women and young girls received guidance on daily hygiene and health practices and discussed various topics such as contraception and puberty. At the end of the training sessions, winter kits, delivery kits, and hygiene kits were also distributed to them.
