Founder’s Story

Rural Health Mission Nigeria was founded in 2014 and officially incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2017. The organization was born out of the personal experiences of its founder, Muhammad Saddiq, who was deeply affected by the challenges faced by his rural community regarding access to maternal healthcare.

Growing up in a rural area, Saddiq witnessed firsthand the struggles pregnant women faced in accessing quality healthcare. In his community, pregnant women had to walk an average of 30 miles to reach the nearest healthcare facility, putting their lives and the lives of their unborn children at risk.

Tragically, Saddiq’s motivation to address this issue became even more personal when his sister lost her life during childbirth in 2012. She passed away while attempting to reach the hospital but was unable to cover the long distance in time.

Inspired by these experiences, Saddiq founded Rural Health Mission Nigeria with the objective of improving healthcare access and outcomes in rural communities, especially for pregnant women. The organization works tirelessly to overcome barriers and ensure that quality maternity care is accessible to all, regardless of their geographical location.
