Description : Mother's clubs are Nigerian Red Cross groups gathering principally women in the villages and cities' suburbs. They talk about hygiene, pregnancy matters, HIV/AIDS, and H5N1 bird disease related risks. This large network has no equivalent in the country and constitutes a great way to reach communities in a trustful way and gather new volunteers.
