Quotes From Kris Oziofu Ero, Convener and Owner of WellBabyNG
“We are beyond excited to work with our partners and sponsors on this project as we do our bit in making the world a better and safer place” she said; “We are driven by our passion for child and family wellness because they are the bedrock of any society. We all are mostly products of our nurturing. Wrongly nurtured children don’t suddenly morph into model and healthy adults. It takes hardwork; but thankfully, TWWT is here to make the work easier. Our hope is that one day, living in optimal wellness will become a default setting for us all” she concluded.
