Project Report | Jan 24, 2020
African community health 2019 annual screening

By QUEEN OBASI | PRESIDENT

 

This year's screening started in the month of November. ACHI went into this year’s mission with mixed feelings of loss due to shortage of medications for the maintenance program encounter as a result of increase in the number individuals seeking for help. This in turn portrays the state of the country’s economy and priorities towards the health of its citizens. We lost some patients as a result of this. The mission itself was very successful. We were able to screen more than 3500 adults, dewormed more than 2800 kids and provided reading glasses to 1566 adults. The general condition in the eastern part of the country is getting worse; hunger, poverty and poor health and living condition is on the rise. We encountered lots of transportation due to bad roads. Most of our vehicles are not working and beyond repairs. Our main issues now is to but able to replace the vehicles, raise more money to be able to increase the quantity of medications needed to continue this mission, and the hope of establishing the laboratory this year. The organization continues to thank our friends, employers, co-workers, Friends of Nigeria, Christ Episcopal Church, and board members of Fr Gerald Onuoha foundation for their continued support and believing that more support come this year.
