What difference does available transport make? Ask Jamila…

Meet Jamila and Abdullahi: a mother who has used ETS and the driver that saved her life
Since 2016, the Emergency Transport Scheme (ETS) has been helping pregnant women in rural communities access vital health services in Nasarawa State, Nigeria. One of these women is Jamila, a mother of three from Obi Local Government Area (LGA).

When Jamila gave birth to her youngest child, Fatima, her contractions started late in the night. She needed to get to a health facility, but she was living in a remote community and her husband was away working on his farm. The cost of transport would have been prohibitively expensive.

Thankfully, Emergency Transport Scheme driver Abdhullahi was on hand to take her to a health facility free of charge. When Jamila experienced post-partum complications, he was there once again to take her to a hospital, where he would go beyond the call of duty to save her life.
