As part of its call for projects – Health and Nutrition Category – The Ivory Foundation supports a project led by the Afghanistan Libre association.
This project aims to contribute to the improvement of the state of health of women as well as the young children through a health and medical support program and to strengthen knowledge in health matters, through courses on health and daily family hygiene.
The educators welcome women and girls 3 times a week to advise them on daily hygiene and health gestures and to address various subjects such as contraception or puberty. After the training, Afghanistan Libre distributes different kits: winter kit, delivery kit and hygiene kit.
In order to also contribute to the improvement of mother and child health, this project promotes access to care, thanks to the monthly visit of a midwife.
