Bauchi State Governor’s wife, Hajiya Aisha Bala Mohammed, has distributed food supplements to pregnant women and children to address problems associated with lack of a proper balanced diet in the state.
Addressing the beneficiaries, shortly after the distribution,
Hajiya Aisha said the items were carefully selected from the local foods by dietitians so as to be easily accessible to the beneficiaries.
She enjoined the beneficiaries to ensure good use of the supplements so as to achieve the desired objective.
Hajiya Aisha called on governments and non-governmental organisations as well as individuals to join hands in providing such food supplements to less privileged and vulnerable members in the society.
The nurse in-charge of Kofar Ran Primary Healthcare Centre, Maryam Mahmoud, thanked the governor’s wife adding that the gesture will no doubt help in addressing lack of proper balanced diet among pregnant women and children.
