Supplements for Indonesian Mums

We don’t need millions of dollars to help improve the health and wellbeing of those who desperately need it. Here is an example of how only $1000 can make a world of difference.

With the help of our major partner Metagenics, OHO recently provided $1000 worth of pregnancy care multivitamins to our partners at Yayasan Bumi Sehat Foundation in IndonesiaYayasan Bumi Sehat (YBS) operates maternal, infant, family healthcare clinics in Indonesia. Their mission is to reduce maternal and child morbidity and mortality and provide sustainable healthcare in their community.

The supplements are being used in Flores- a small town in Indonesia, where, one in 62 pregnant women die from complications of pregnancy and/or childbirth, most commonly linked to postpartum hemorrhage.Malnutrition is the root cause of postpartum hemorrhagne. It also causes hypertension and preeclampsia. Pregnancy supplements provide the key nutrients required by a pregnant woman for her own and baby’s health, thus reducing such health risks.

We are pleased to work with Metagenics and YBS in helping make a difference to the lives of not just the pregnant women but also our future generation.
