The Resource Center at Amakohia in Ihitte/Uboma LGA continues to be our site for the outreach in this community. We currently have a functioning source of drinking water supply serving this community at this place. We also conducted this year’s medical mission successfully at center without any difficulty. The availability of toilet facility at the center also contributed to the success of this mission. We have all our donors, friends, organizations like Friends of Nigeria who has made funds available to assist in the ACHI has concluded its 2017 medical outreach in the following communities- Avutu Obawo, Amakaohia village in Ihitte Uboma and Umugolo village in Ehime Mbano LGA, all in Imo state. The deplorable health continues in these rural areas continues to be a great concern. The lack of health care access to in the country is getting worse due to the bad economy. The none payment of salaries, pensions to the retires and unemployment has worsened the health of the population. medical care and availability is dependent on one’s ability to pay for the service before it is rendered, and this has sent a lot of individuals to their early grave. The ones with chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension cannot afford their medications or regular doctors visit for continuity of care remodeling of this building, and all the work that is being done to make sure our dream of having a place to house medical supplies and equipment, reinforcing education on chronic disease management, to thank for all this. We are still working on having a functioning medical laboratory at this center for follow- up care. Secondly, we are trying to get the land scaping done to help in managing the place and to help in making the environment safe and free of some creatures like termites that is destroying some of the medical supplies. We continued to need your help in getting this done.
