Medical outreach for 2015

The long awaiting medical outreach for 2015 is going to take place by end of October . We have had financial challenges and personal problems that delayed the execution of this year's outreach the usual time which is usually during the summer. The three villages that will be covered this year are Avutu village in Obowo local government area where we will spend two days screening adults for diabetes and hypertension and treating other diseas conditions, and doing vision screening. We also provide readers for the individuals that are identified and refer those with major problems to the federal hospital at Owerri the state capital of Imo state. We will also screen children, educate them on oral hygiene and give them worm medications with parental consent. The other the villages are Amakohia in Ihitte Uboma local government area and Umugolo in Ehime Mbano local government area, both in IMO state Nigeria. We will spend two days in each village 

We have been getting calls from concerned villages to inquire on why we have been to the villages for the outreach and the impact the program is making on the life of the rural villagers who have no access to any health. These calls has really validated the effectiveness of the program and its importance to the community we serve. This is a program that needs to be supported and funded. We could cover more areas and serve more people with more support and funding.

Restroom project at the Resource Center

The Resource Center at Amakohia village in Ihitte Uboma local government is getting another addition to it. The center is used for maintenance program for individuals around the village who are coming to have their blood sugars checked and subsequently collect their medications, dressing supplies as needed. We saw the need for a restroom to be added. We have no toilet facility for people in attendance and staff. We applied for a grant to help construct the center, and was able to get help from Friends of Nigeria to build a restroom at the center. Our goal is to construct three restrooms for both staff and the villagers in attendance. For us to continue to teach about health and hygiene, we need water and toilet facility. We still need help to sink a borehole for water supply at the center.

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.
