ACHI's decision to have a centrally located place to house our medical supplies, used as a follow up site for health education and reinforcement on chronic disease management is still in progress. We made the decision based on the results of our annual outreaches for the past nine years. The inability of the individuals in the rural areas of Nigeria to manage their conditions is complicated by financial poverty and POVERTY OF KNOWLEDGE. These individuals have no knowledge of chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension; therefor have no knowledge of the disease process and management. We have been able to put doors and windows at the center, which has enabled us to put the left over supplies from our last mission away at this place. The site is currently used for follow up cares. More work still needs to be done. The already completed work was made possible by Friends Of Nigeria; Peace corps volunteers that were in Nigeria in the 1960s. We still need source of water supply, electricity and a toilet facility. The building is not yet done and with your help it will be completed and used for the purpose it is meant for. Attached are pictures of the building from our last concluded mission in August.
