  2. Wow that is a very good idea, may the good Lord bless the person that brought out this idea because pregnant women they need care seriously that journey is not an easy journey its only God that knows what they pass through

  3. Waooo impressed, what a great community, I think they really love each other and trust there self, because to find a community like this Is not easy. I love you so much and god we be with you people.

  4. Everything in Nigeria is not working at all, the government of jigawa state can not build a clinic for the residents of that village, 29km it’s very far to that village. What of if anything happens on their way and God forbid, what would have happened. May God help us in this country.

  5. Kudos to those women for displayed the attitude of generosity, may Almighty God reward them beyond their expectations here and hereafter. For those who had millions and cannot do this shior to them. State government should do something about it because it’s need urgent attention in order to save lives not because of today but tommorow. It’s saddened not to have hospital in that village.

  6. A better life has been achieved when we are no longer trying to achieve a better life. It means that we are content, as we should be, with ourselves and what we have. To be anxious for more or to envy someone else’s life or possessions is self-defeating. We are then in a constant state of frustration, always hoping and waiting for more happiness.love and happiness incharger

    1. I was wondering why they had to buy a car to convey pregnant women in labour, I never knew the closest hospital to them is 29Km, that’s a long distance.
      Good initiative by the women.
      The government is got to do something in that village concerning building an hospital

  7. Heyyy!!!! This news is touching..o
    My body is filled with goose pimples
    See how these women have resorted to self help in a country where there is so much wealth. Why our so call leaders are busy stealing trillions of Naira from our common treasury, these women are suffering trying to solve a problem that is supposed to be solved by the government
    Why should the government not build a hospital for them so they can easily see where to go and give birth. These people in government are not trying..o but they make a hell lot of noise
    Kudos to these women who have through their sweat contributed to get a means of seeing where to give birth to babies
    Shame to the government who is not doing what they are supposed to do
