Health Screening for 12 villages in Rural Nigeria

by African community health intiative
Mar 28, 2012

Mission Plan for 2012

ACHI continues to care for the individuals identified during our annual outreaches in the rural areas of Eastern Nigeria. Our maintenance program has really made a difference in the health of those individuals with Diabetes and Hypertension. Our visiting nurse reported good number of people with good glucose control and lowered blood pressures, as a result of the maintenance program we have in place. Also our team left for Namibia to monitor the feeding program and assess the situation there. The number of Ophans served in Namibia has risen from 150 to 350. Also a group will be going to Nigeria in July to conduct health screening and education in 7 villages this year, we will spend two days in three of the villages because of the population and number of cases identified last. We will continue to provide the needed help to individuals with needs, who are unable to take care of their own health need, due to ignorance, and poverty.
