Earlier today had a well attended and successful ward visit to Township ward.
Led by the Patron of the Nurturing Care-Smart Start Siaya, First Lady Siaya, we were able to reach up to 435 of residents at Awelo Chief’s Camp.
Anxious to listen and learn, those who attended were so calm to get the information.
The Patron had a lot to share with the residents on the NC, she sensitized them on nurturing care and reasons why it should be done, if well upheld, Siaya shall be a county of heroes as it was some years back.
She also gave porridge flour to mothers/caregivers of the young ones.
The area Chief Mr. Romlus Okoth promised to work with the birth Registrar office and the nurturing care team to speed up birth certificate issuing and will be on check of any defilement case saying swift and harsh actions shall be taken on perpetrator.
Dr. Elizabeth ( Reproductive,Maternal,Newborn ,Child and Adolescent Health,RMNCAH ,Coordinator encouraged the Men to get involved in the Nurturing Care and child Stimulation, she also insisted of proper Care of Children as ECD is concerned. She also talked about nutrition which is important for the Child’s Development.
