Nurturing healthy beginnings!
World Breastfeeding Week was celebrated last week with the theme, ‘Enabling Breastfeeding: making a difference for working parents’ through UMN’s Pro-Act project in Rukum East. The objective was to encourage breastfeeding and support the practice of exclusive breastfeeding among working women, ultimately enhancing the health of infants.
Health workers and Female Community Health Volunteers from eight health facilities were engaged in 14 different events and community meetings and over 423 community members were sensitised on the importance of exclusive breastfeeding. Organised through UMN’s local partner NPAF, the event took place in collaboration with the health office and the local government.
