Aisha Buhari lays foundation of 50-bed maternity centre in Daura
The wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, on Thursday laid the foundation of a 50-bed Maternity and Child Care Centre in Daura, Katsina State, to promote child and maternal health in the area.
Mrs Buhari said the project was fully funded by the Aisha Buhari Foundation under the Future Assured programme.
She said the aim of the project was to reduce maternal and child mortality, adding, “We would ensure that we establish a well-equipped, functional maternity centre in each of the six geo-political zones in the country.”
She called on public spirited individuals and corporate organisations to support the programme, stressing that, “I told our donors to construct this centre without handling the money by myself.”
