Fountain Africa partner to launch midwives programme in Bungoma


Airtel Kenya has partnered with Fountain Africa Trust to launch a community midwives programme to support expectant women, new mothers and newborns in Bungoma County, Kenya.

The programme offers free calling and sms service to 57 midwives and staff from Fountain Africa Trust, that will enable sharing of information and learning experiences between Bungoma County mothers, themselves, and the County ministry of health officials.

Airtel will also offer 24-hour free internet connectivity for Fountain Africa Trust, giving them unlimited access to online information that will help them carry out their programme effectively and interact with other midwives across the globe.

In a statement, Airtel Kenya CEO Adil El Youssefi said that the company is helping the government attain its Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 by enabling the midwives to communicate effectively for free, especially when they are faced with emergencies.
