LDS Charities Helps Save 1.8 Million Children in Nigeria

Take a look at a little of the good LDS Charities is accomplishing in Nigeria.

The LDS Charities, an arm of the humanitarian program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, working in partnership with the Pediatrics Association of Nigeria (PAN), has helped save more than 1.8 million babies through the Neonatal Resuscitation project in Nigeria in the past 10 years.

"If we save the lives of children, we brighten the hope of a better society," said the Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, His Excellency Honorable Yusuf Barnabas Bala, at this year’s Pediatrics Association of Nigeria Conference held in Kaduna, Nigeria.

The outgoing president of PAN, Dr. Elizabeth Disu, was full of praise for the support received from LDS Charities over the years—which has included actual training of doctors, anesthetic nurses and donations of neonatal training materials.
