UPCOMING EVENT

ACHI will like to use this opportunity to thank all our donors for their generosity these past years. Your support has helped so many in need of simple health care in the rural areas of Nigeria. You have helped us to save many lives, prevented or slowed the onset of complications on individuals with diabetes and hypertension. Our goal is to is to eradicate the poverty of knowledge among the rural dwellers, whose knowledge of chronic disease process and management is very limited or not there to begin with. Our message is spreading and we are able to educate as many as our budget can get to at every location. We are embarking on another outreach this year and we are hoping to get more funding and donation from concerned individuals. We cannot do this with your backing and we are thankful for your words of encouragement, financial support and prayers. Our outreach starts in the month of July to August. Our goal is to reach more people this year, and to have more successful stories for our donors.

Building Update

The need for a center for coordination of care for the villagers with chronic diseases continues to be our dream. We are doing our best with the limited support we are receiving from individuals and groups. This past year with the help of a US base organization called friends of Nigeria and Christ church Episcopal in Woodbury, we were able to complete the ceiling project, mount the doors and windows with window protectors to safe guide the equipments we have. More work still needs to be done for it to be put to use. We need electricity, water supply and toilet facility. We also need to have some of the rooms plastered with cement so we could paint them. The building is still being managed to run our maintenance program and annual outreach activities. We are praying and hoping for more funding this year so we can do more work. This building when completed will serve as a resource center for disease management, outlet for medical equipments and supplies for the needy, follow up center for investigations.

Update on Resource building Renovation

ACHI's decision to have a centrally located place to house our medical supplies, used as a follow up site for health education and reinforcement on chronic disease management is still in progress. We made the decision based on the results of our annual outreaches for the past nine years. The inability of the individuals in the rural areas of Nigeria to manage their conditions is complicated by financial poverty and POVERTY OF KNOWLEDGE. These individuals have no knowledge of chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension; therefor have no knowledge of the disease process and management. We have been able to put doors and windows at the center, which has enabled us to put the left over supplies from our last mission away at this place. The site is currently used for follow up cares. More work still needs to be done. The already completed work was made possible by Friends Of Nigeria; Peace corps volunteers that were in Nigeria in the 1960s. We still need source of water supply, electricity and a toilet facility. The building is not yet done and with your help it will be completed and used for the purpose it is meant for. Attached are pictures of the building from our last concluded mission in August.
