New York, New York – As previously announced and introduced to the world, Port Harcourt, Nigeria’s Mayor Chimbiko Iche Akarolo, adopted the musical moniker of C-Strokes after losing his devout wife during childbirth, due to a poor health system. This tragedy translated into music which in turn gave birth to CAF, a foundation created in honor of his late wife to support pregnant women and childcare.
It was by a chance meeting with Mojo Morgan of Reggae’s royalty Morgan Heritage, that an association with Heritage Grown Productions who shares in the vision to support childcare with emphasis on malaria was formed. Mojo is featured on the remix of the lead single “It’s All About You” from the upcoming album “Reality (Love & Life)”.
All Proceeds from the single will go to the CAF Foundation.
About Caroline Akarolo Foundation
Caroline Akarolo Foundation began as an anniversary memorial in honour of the Mayor of Port Harcourt’s late wife, Caroline Akarolo, who passed on on August 28, 2011, about 24 hours after childbirth.
At the commemorative “Caroline Akarolo Day for Safe Motherhood and Childcare” event of August 28, 2012, attended by the wife of the Governor of Rivers State, Judith Amaechi, the CEO of O. B. Lulu-Briggs Foundation, Siene Lulu-Briggs, the Chairman of the Rivers State Chapter of Nigerian Medical Association, Dr Ibitoroko Korubo and many other actors in Safe Motherhood and Childcare, everyone who spoke urged the event organizers to move the initiative from being just a special day for Safe Motherhood and Childcare to becoming a full-blown foundation.
Today, Caroline Akarolo Foundation focuses on coordinating for building and maintaining platforms, networks and systems towards supporting the availability and delivery of timely professional medical services to mothers having babies and infants needing care. The foundation will do this through her
planned periodic Safe Motherhood Roundtables for public, private and civil-society sector actors, her annual Caroline Akarolo Day for Safe Motherhood and Childcare, her soon-to-be purchased fully-kitted Caroline Akarolo Maternal Emergency Mobile Hospital and her other planned programmes.
