Comic Relief Emergency Transport Scheme Project

Goal

SFH implement the project in Adamawa state in collaboration with Transaid and NURTW. The project is aimed at contributing to saving the lives of pregnant women and new born in Adamawa state. This is done by increasing their uptake of maternal services and referral to registered health facilities through the use of NURTW volunteer drivers. The project is implemented in 16 LGAs of the state with 40 volunteer drivers in each LGA totaling 640 volunteer drivers. A total of 32 focal persons (2 per LGA) who are also NURTW drivers coordinate activities in intervention LGAs with the support of the State NURTW Chairman and Secretary. Below is a table of number of women of reproductive age provided with ETS services across intervention LGAs in the period under review.

Quarterly club meeting

640 Volunteer drivers in all intervention LGAs (40/LGA)

Project performance in LGAs were discussed, experience sharing done
and data documentation issues addressed. Best two performing volunteer
drivers in all the LGAs were also appreciated with recharge vouchers.

Commemoration of Volunteer Day Celebration for 2017 held in
three clusters

640 Volunteer drivers in all intervention LGAs (40/LGA),
LGA Chairmen and Focal Person as well as partners/stakeholders

All volunteer drivers appreciated and rewarded with vehicle
engine oil and other gift items. The best two performing drivers were also
given financial incentive by her Excellency, the Wife of the Governor of
Adamawa state.

 

 

Note: A total of 1,527 pregnant women in emergency situation were provided transport services by volunteer drivers in the 16 LGAs between January and April, 2017 as seen in the table above.

Challenge

·        Perception by community members that volunteer drivers receive monthly stipend hence do
not support them in subsidizing their fuel cost.

Way Forward on Challenges

·        Use media appearance to sensitize community members on need to appreciate or
compensate volunteer drivers’ since the services they provide is affordable and
not absolutely free.

SFH appreciate the partnership and enabling environment created for activities and make commitment to sustain activities towards improving the lives of the poor and vulnerable target population in the state.
