Operation Spare Your Lunch and Save a Child Life.
Operation Spare your Lunch and Save a Child Life project is to make health service accessible to poor mother who cannot register their children into the National health Insurance. Mothers and children living in remote or marginalized communities in the central region of Ghana. Identify pregnant women and educated them on the need to attend ante –natal. Ascertain whether the provision of the NHIS card for children could reduce the child mortality rate in the region.
With cash DONATION of 4 Euro, a child in Ghana can access free health service for a period of One Year, the same amount of 4 Euro can pay for a Lunch. We believe that if contributors give their one day Lunch money as donation, they could give a child one year registration of free health service. project seek to raise 5000 Euro to register 1000 babies into the National Health Insurance Scheme and renew their card for another one year. . Could you believe that even if you do not eat and spare your Lunch money for the seek of this project, you could have fasted for a few hours and it has spiritual and health benefit. Your spare your Lunch Money to make health access to a Child for a year and your get instance benefit which is spiritual and health. With this cause, any amount raise could still make a difference in a child health Life.
The impact of a combination of Primary Health Care intervention activities on child survival, growth, morbidity and mortality is the provision of basic essential drugs and supplies for the treatment of common childhood diseases, treatment of the sick child, growth monitoring, health education, provision of antenatal services, family planning, training and supervision of Community Health Workers in Ghana. These activities in their totality have had significant impact on morbidity and mortality in children under five.
Dolly Foundation has already register 800 children into the scheme.
Despite significance reduction in maternal, infant and under five mortality rates in Ghana, it is unlikely that the 2015 Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets could be met. Ghana could achieve the targets if effective maternal and child survival interventions were increased.
The need for this project is to help pay for the medical bills of children through the registration of children into the National Health Insurance.
