ACHI 2012 Health Screening in Nigeria

ACHI is in the process of embarking on another medical mission trip to seven villages in Nigeria this Summer. We focused on finding partners who could help us with medical supplies for our mission this year, based on our discoveries during the past screenings. We were able to identify individuals with physical needs, and we directed our search for partners towards that. We were able to secure wheelchairs, canes, walkers and crutches for individuals who has some limitations. These equipments have been shipped to Nigeria, and will be distributed to these individuals. We also received 1600 pairs of eye glasses through our partners, and these will be handed out during our medical outreach this year.

Our goal this year is to increase the number individuals screened at every village from 300 to 400. We would like to see this number increase, and the number of villages screened to continue to increase every year, thereby reducing the number of people that turned down every year. Your continued support is the reason we are still able to go back to provide care these rural dwellers with no or limited access to health care. We due appreciate your support.
