We want to use this opportunity to thank our wonderful donors whose financial assistance has helped this organization in make the lives of the villagers we serve worth living .

Achi’s mission of reaching the unreachable , improving  the health of rural dwellers one village to the next, helping  those identified with chronic diseases, like diabetes and hypertension, to self manage their condition through health screening , health education and maintenance program. In our six years of medical outreach in rural villages of Africa, we have made amazing discoveries about the prevalence of chronic diseases and the high mortality rate among these rural dwellers.  We have been able to reduce  the mortality rate by 95% of the individuals identified during screening. This was done by educating them on disease process, prevention of complications and self management. Also by making  medications  and testing  materials available to them.  There has been a tremendous decrease in the blood glucose and blood pressure levels of these individuals with diabetes and hypertension.

Our goal is to have a central place where these people could go to collect medical supplies for wound care, diabetic  test strips and machines, and follow-up laboratory work. The center will be used for classes on chronic disease management and for support groups.   We have a building for this for project that needs to be renovated to serve the purpose.
