Geri Halliwell Update

Finally I have a little update on Geri, I can report that this week Geri is in Africa as part of her United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Goodwill Ambassador work.
Geri Halliwell is in Zambia to learn and acquaint herself with issues relating to maternal health.The singer who made her mark as on of the Spice Girls, said upon her arrival, that there was need to remind governments to prevent maternal deaths.

She said it was sad that about 500,000 mothers die from maternal related diseases every year when these could be prevented.
Ms. Halliwell said keeping mothers healthy would entail having healthy children and a health nation in future.

She is scheduled to visit a number of health institutions in Lusaka, hold talks with selected cabinet ministers, mothers before leaving for Solwezi, Wednesday to visit more UNFPA projects.
