Changing The Face Of Maternal Health

Soul Purpose is proud to announce its newest partnership:  a collaboration with Miss Ghana USA 2010/2011 Finalist Rebekah A. Ofori-Frimpong and her MaMa Africa program.

MaMa Africa’s mission is to send “Mommy Care” packages to mothers in 10 African countries and three cities in the United States.  Beginning in October, Soul Purpose will donate products to these mothers on an on-going basis.

MaMa Africa focuses on maternal health of at-risk mothers in the United States and Africa, and is part of Rebekah’s New Face of African Health (NFAH) and its Mind, Body and Soul (MBS) Community Health Project, created to motivate African people in the United States and Africa to take charge of their health and to improve health conditions in their communities.

The MBS Project will address social, environmental and preventable measures to positively impact at-risk populations and focuses on three main areas of concern:

  • MIND
    Changing Perceptions:
      Educational programs that promote awareness of preventable diseases and health conditions along with health classes that include alternative health, mental health and nutrition.
  • BODY
      Exercise programs, running/walking clinics, health promotions concerning nutrition and other ways to improve physical health.  Body Impact also encourages at-risk populations to obtain annual health checkups and to create clinics that provide accessible health options in their communities.
    Preventative Measures:
      A volunteer network that will positively impact the health of people in communities by working with organizations that improve environmental health conditions such as planting trees, donating clean water or mobilizing efforts to offer help when and where it is needed.

Soul Purpose is pleased to be part of this endeavor that is working to change the face of health in Africa and the United States from a global perspective with emphasis on global health initiatives and community networks that foster healthy lifestyles.
