We are a body of women who despite all hindrances and set back in our community, we have decided to be a voice to the oppressed, to seek peace no matter the cost believing that meaningful development can only take place in an atmosphere of peace. Our main reason for volunteering is because we are women who one way or the other have tasted the pains of inadequate care during and after child birth but for God we may not be alive today to fight this cause. We believe it is cause that must be pursued vigorously so as to put a stop to these avoidable deaths.

I am a registered Nurse in Nigeria since 1986, am also registered in United Kingdom and Newzealand. I worked in United Kingdom as a Nurse for Five years and while there, i noticed that their health care system was near perfect compared to my country Nigeria, where there are so many neglect as per our Government. I use to ponder,if my country health for the citizen programme can be given topmost priority, this will reduce the death rate of my people.There are so many pregnancy related death cases, that as a midwife, it saddens my heart to see cases which could have been avoided leading to untimely termination of life. It is sad that in my country there are inadequate hospitals, maternity homes, and local care centers  including insufficient modern equipments in the hospitals.

Those available are expensive for the ordinary family. On top of this, is the issue of bad roads; shortage of medical personnels; electricity,light can go off during an operation in some local centers which can endanger the life of patients;   non availability of funds for a family to pay for caeserian operation if suggested by  a doctor, thereby resulting to people opting for an alternative medicine home etc. Seeing all these motivates me to use the little means i have to help some  disadvantaged families who need help. As such,  i am willing to volunteer for the sake of the less privileged women in the society, in order to reduce the pregnancy related death.

I am a building Engineer by Proffession and I have been previledged to work with Humanitarian Org in the past and sure will like to contribute my own Quota helping to make the world safer .

The passion to serve humanity is something that gives me that innermost JOY and Satisfaction. This same passion was the major reason why i was an inducted member of the Junior Chambers International (JCI). The major aim of JCI was to uphold democratic parliamentary tenets at collegiate and tertiary levels, and to promote the culture of serving humanity at local and international levels.

In 2003 i was accredited by the Justice, Development and Peace Commission to monitor and record on the spot electioneering events in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, Nigeria.

As a professional building engineering  consultant and a certified project manager, I have had  the rear privilege  of coordinating building projects in remote, laid back rural  settlements.

 

Working within remote communities, I observed that these communities were grossly neglected by the Government; as a result, there exists high rate of poverty, illiteracy and of course, very high maternal mortality incidents.

I believe that we all have a role to play in helping these vulnerable people living in remote communities. More so, it beholds on each and every privileged member of our society to cultivate the habit of extending a helping hand to our brothers and sisters who have found themselves in these dangerous and life threatening conditions, as exists in Nigerian rural communities.

 

I will play my part in the cause, by actively campaigning to save Nigerian women from poverty and pregnancy related deaths.

 

Long Live the Volunteers ! Long Live the SMI !!

I joined this campaign because im very passionate about women and much concern about the difficulties they normally pass true during child birth especially in rural areas. The most worst thing that could happen in life is not death but seeing a woman's lifeless body lying in her own blood after child birth or died at home because of inadequate medical attention.  Niger State

NIGERIA  Ibadan Oyo State

PROFILE AND REASON FOR VOLUNTEERING

RALLY  COVERAGE AREA


Name: Deborah Salami 

Organization:  CAFSO-Women's Rights Action Group

Email: cafsowrag5@yahoo.co.uk

Nigeria  I am the President of CAFSO- Women's Rights Action Group, a non-governmental organization promoting the rights and advancement of women in all ramifications.

Since the establishment of CAFSO-WRAG in 2001, I have played a leading role in activities targeted towards bringing about sustainable change in the plight of women particularly maternal and reproductive health and rights issues: building the capacity of local women to combat poverty -as research has it that 65% of people that are poor are women. We have carried out peaceful rallies on a number of issues affecting women .One of these is the market rally held on October17 2009 the UN Anti-Poverty Day. This was done to mobilize the critical mass of Women in sending signals to government on the need to improve the quality of life of women and their children. I have led the launching of PIGA DEBE for women's maternal health asking why should mothers die giving birth? Piga debe in Swahili language means make a loud noise about something.

I wish to volunteer because this activity is within the scope of what I do in my organisation and it is what I have passion in doing. Nigeria makes up 2%of the world's population, but it accounts for 10% of the world's maternal death. 54,000 Nigerian women die annually from pregnancy related complications translating to one woman dying every thirty minutes anywhere in this country. This rally is another intervention that can bring about change in the Nigerian maternal status quo and I look forward to playing a prominent role in it.

We intend to organize the rally in Ibadan at the Oyo State House of Assembly Governors Office and Parastatal and the Nigerian Television Authority station for Media involvement.

Ibadan is the capital city of Oyo State, so it is just right for us to do it for the legislatures, the executive arms of government like the State Governor, the Commissioner of Health and Women Affairs and all who are connected with policy issues relating to women to feel the great impact of the rally so that they can take affirmative action on this issue. Women in the rural areas, market women in urban centres and trade associations will be mobilised to make the rally broad based.
