Work at the resource center

Our next scheduled and needed work at the resource is to build a Restroom that will serve the  staff and the attendees to our outreach program at this site. Due to the increase in the number of people that are receiving services at the center, there is a great need to have a toilet facility within the premises.  We continue to need your support in making this center a permanent place that will service the need of these individuals in need of health from our organization. The resource center is currently housing most of our medical supplies , and this makes it easy for our beneficiaries to have easy access to medical supplies needed to manage their conditions. When completed, the Center is going to serve different purpose including health education classes to reinforce learning. Thanks for all your supports to this organization. We are going to Nigeria in October to conduct out annual outreach program.

Annual Health Screening in Rural villages of Niger

We are getting ready for our annual medical outreach in rural areas of Nigeria. Due to limited financial assistance, we are planning to conduct the screening at four centrally located villages, that are also easily accessible by others from other neighboring villages. We are spending two days at each village, making it a total of  eight outreach. We are preparing this by looking for assistance from friends and relations and donors to assist us in achieving our goal of changing the lives of many through health screening, education and maintenance of good health and disease management from one village to the next. We have total of 7 people currently on insulin and they are being followed and monitored carefully. We have been able to stop the development of complications in many with diabetes, and slowed down the progression of complications by making sure they have steady supplies of their medications throughout the year round maintenance program . The need for chronic disease management in these villages are many and help is needed to be able to help the needy.

Outcome of the Annual maintenance Program

ACHI'S annual maintenance program has help to reduce the number of death in the rural areas of Nigeria resulting from Diabetes and Hypertension. Individuals identified during annual outreaches with diabetes and hypertension are being followed year round making medications and monitoring available to them at no cost. People are living longer with these chronic diseases because of the cares they are receiving. We are currently collecting medications to be sent to Nigeria for the diabetics and the hypertensive before our next medical mission which will be in October. We measure the outcome of the program from the number of the individuals who are still living with chronic diseases, reduction in number of individual with complications and increase in the number of people being followed after each program which has doubled. The increase has also brought some financial difficulties to the organization, we need more help to be able to sustain these people.   

The reource center is where the maintenance program takes place at Amakohia village and houses most of our testing supplies and dressing supplies. We still help to bring it to a standard for us to be able to run a clinic and reach more individuals daily.
