Need for a functioning Laboratory at the Resource

As we continue to provide healthcare to the less privileged and under served in rural areas of Nigeria. We have seen the need to have a functioning laboratory for follow up care at the resource center. Due to the poverty level and the lack of any good laboratory in the area for the blood levels to monitor those on medications for diabetes and hypertension, this is a needed service to help promote life and prevent complications. We are currently using LAB-IN-A-SUITCASE during our annual outreach and the tests done with this equipment is limited. With the lab we will be able to monitor the effectiveness of the medications and any side effects from the medications also. We are trying to raise money to be able to initiate the project during our November mission and will need your continued support as we try to make this important addition to our program, so we can serve the people better.
