Ivory Coast Mothers and Children was honored in the region of Sikensi on May 1, their Labor Day. Our founder, Patricia Nau Mertz on behalf of ICMC received a certificate for being “a force that stimulates progress.” in the midst of the pomp and circumstance of a parade with colorfully dressed officials and representatives from the villages.
Vitamin Angels provided prenatal vitamins for all of the expectant mothers in two villages, as well as vitamins for the children between the ages of 1-5 who are most vulnerable to malnutrition and disease.
Thank you to all who donated dolls, toys and clothes for the orphans and brand new baby clothes for the newborns which is an incentive for making prenatal visits.
If you would like to get involved or participate in any way for our next trip, please contact us. All donations and love is welcome.
