PUNCH Newspaper Reports: Japan Embassy Sponsored Project in Ikola Community

Group seeks better health care for childrenSeptember 17, 2018 Oluwatobi Akindele A non-governmental organisation, Street to School Initiative, has called for better health care for children. The founder of the initiative, Mrs Tosin Taiwo, who noted that sick children did not have the ability to learn optimally, spoke during the inauguration of a rehabilitated Ikola Primary Health Care Centre, which was sponsored by the Japanese embassy.
She said, “We realised that in the community we serve, there was no primary health care centre for children and this had a devastating effect. “When we understood this challenge, we decided to push for this project. We reached out to the Japanese embassy and thankfully, they intervened. “When children in this community fall sick, they resort to traditional herbs and it does not help. They also do not go to a hospital because they feel that they cannot afford a private hospital. Consequentl…

The Transformed Health Centre

When we lost one of our pupils last year, it was a difficult thing to bear. Till date, the pain still lingers. 
She was only 7years and, I could remember that morning she was brought to my office, she complained of headache. We asked if she had eaten, she answered 'No'. So, we got her some meal. She ate and slept in my office, afterwards. No class for that day. No class. Sorry. 
That day, she was the last pupil to leave school for home as mama came pretty late to pick her. Mary was off school for some days. To cut the story short. Little Mary died some two weeks, thereafter. 
When a child is sick, we don't just send them home anymore, as we aren't sure of how much medical care they would be given, due to lack in the home. So we ensure we follow through. We get the children into the nearest private clinic, where laboratory tests are conducted, and necessary drugs prescribed. Often times we have had the children admitted for days. We would wait patiently…

Health Project Commissioning in a Glimpse.

This project is important to us because overtime in the community, we have had to deal with children with failing health, and in most cases we take the responsibility of carrying these sick children to private hospital for Proper Healthcare, bearing the financial implications. We try as much as we can to dissuade parents from relying solely on traditional herbs for respite. We have once lost a pupil and two mothers due to this negligence, We don't want to lose anyone anymore. This was Walmart prompted our call for intervention to the Japanese government. And, we are thankful for the assistance accorded in providing adequate medical and office equipment to Ikola Primary Healthcare Centre. 
A sick child don't learn well. So we ensure that we try our possible in
