In Nigeria, 2,300 children under the age of 5 die every single day. Most of these deaths are due to preventable causes, and are the result of a chronic lack of access to quality health information and medical personnel.

Just a few weeks ago, a 27 year old first time mother using OMOMi’s Chat With A Doctor feature, was able to detect an umbilical cord infection in her 8 day old baby when she sent the doctor a photo of the baby’s cord; & because of this she was able to seek help promptly at a hospital, which saved the baby’s life.
