To focus on decreasing mortality and morbidity rates (MMR, PMR, NMR & IMR).

To facilitate the establishment of the FS MACAH (FS Mother & Child Academic Hospital) on the University of the Free State campus.

It’s all about care…

Without proper antenatal care, fortified nutrition and development stimulation in this time, children spend their whole lives fighting to survive.
