We received a message with pictures of parts of the walls around the Resource center cracked and about to fall. The wall around is a form of security to prevent break in into the building. We were instructed to act quickly because of the raining season to prevent more damages by preventing the wall from coming down. This we did with little funds in our account to safeguard the place.

During the month of May, we combined food drive and maintenance program at the resources cent and other locations. We raised some money to buy raw food stuff for the population we serve. We were able to supply about 520 families with Rice, brown beans, black eye peas and tomatoes that will last them for two months depending on the size of the family. Our sincere thanks goes to Friends of Nigeria of America, Christ Episcopal Church in Woodbury, St Mary's Guild of Christ Episcopal church in Woodbury, ACHI board members and friends. We are planning conducting another food drive in July because the condition is getting worse in the villages we serve. There is always room for donation for us to reach more people.

ACHI continues to see the need for a stationary and functional medical laboratory at the Resource center to help in management of those with chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension, and are on long term medications for the treatment. They need to have to labs checked periodically to be able dictate any side effects or complications. We do recommend those to the individuals but due to financial difficulties and lack of any functioning medical labs within their reach, makes it impossible for them to follow through with the recommendations.We continue to fundraise to be able to make this a reality. We are able to provide the services because of your commitment and kindness towards this organization, making it possible for us to render help to others in need. It is not about giving back but about giving.

ACHI's plan of having a stationary laboratory is still in progress and we almost there but not quite. The need to have a medical laboratory that is centrally located that will serve all the communities continues to be our focus. Our goal of keeping these individuals safe cannot be complete if we are unable to monitor the effect of the treatments given to them. Due to the financial burden on these individuals and no access to a qualified medical laboratories that are afford around makes it difficult for them to follow up with instructions after the medical outreach and during the monthly maintenance program. We have started getting the room ready by getting the plumbing work done. We are still in need of financial assistance to secure the needed lab equipment for basic tests. ACHI continues to appreciate your continued support in making sure that this outreach and the maintenance program continues every year. Our goal is to have this added service ready by 2021.

ACHI continues to improve in the level of cares delivered at the Resource center by adding more needed amenities to the site. We have seen the need to have a functioning stationary laboratory at the Resource center to help provide more services to the population in serve in the rural areas. We started the processing of gathering equipment for the lab last year and the process continues this year. We are yet to raise enough fund for the project while we continue to get the structure ready. The presence of the laboratory will help us monitor the effectiveness of the treatment offered and the conditions of the internal organs to be able identify any complications or damage to the organs. We have gotten the septic tank ready and purchased very few lab equipment with the little money raised so far. We appreciate you kind donations and willingness in assisting us in providing adequate health care to the needy and giving hope to the hopeless

The need for a functional laboratory at the Resource Center among other things continues to be our focus this period. Have been managing these individuals with chronic diseases over the years with good result. We have at the same time seen the need for a place to have them go to for lab tests, to be able to monitor the effect of these medications on the organs. The people under our care have no access to a lab or any kind of medical treatment except what we offer them monthly and annually.

We have started construction buy having the water supply to the room for them connected and the sink in place. We are doing fundraising to be able to purchase the needed laboratory equipment and installation. We continued to depend on our donors for the assistance to accomplish this goal, which will be beneficial to the population we are serving. Thank you for all your supports and effort in spraying our story to others
