We hope you are all well and looking forward to Christmas.
We are delighted to inform you that things are going well since our last report on the two-day annual medical outreach last June.
A few of the five hundred people who attended the medical outreach have been supported with specialist investigations and treatments at tertiary centres.
The seven people who received cataract operations are doing very well and looking after their families better.
Our Medication Maintenance Programme is expanding and reaching more people. The monthly sessions provide some of the poorest individuals in the communities with free regular blood pressure and diabetes checks and medication supplies. We facilitate specialist investigations and treatment in local hospitals when required.
With the economic crisis in Nigeria increasingly very bleak, more people are applying for our small interest free loans scheme.
Our immense thanks to you for your continued support for our programme to improve the health and wellbeing of poor communities in rural Southeast Nigeria.
We hope you are all well and enjoying the summer weather.
We are delighted to inform you that our annual two-day Free Medical Outreach held on 2nd & 3rd June 2023 went extremely well.
We had about 500 people attending on both days, and all received free primary medical consultations, medications (including for blood pressure, diabetes, malaria, arthritis)
About half of the 500 people received free eye screening, eye drops and ointments. Of these, 35 people identified with eye problems required specialist investigations. Seven people with matured cataracts received surgical operations.
Our Medication Maintenance Programme is going very well. The aim of the monthly sessions is to provide the poorest individuals in the communities with free regular blood pressure checks and medication supplies. We also facilitate specialist investigations in local hospitals where required. We plan to include diabetes monitoring this year.
We thank you so much for your continued support for our programme to improve the health and wellbeing of poor communities in rural South east Nigeria.

Hello everyone and hope you are keeping well during these difficult times.
We are pleased to inform you that our next Free Medical Outreach is on 2nd & 3rd June 2023. This will involve providing free primary medical consultations and eye screening and some medications including for blood pressure, diabetes, malaria, arthritis, and eye drops and ointments.
People identified with eye problems during outreach who require specialist investigations, will be supported to do so and those with cataracts provided with free surgical operations.
We are currently busy ensuring that we will have the clinical and non-clinical volunteers, and all the relevant resources required for the outreach to be a success. We look forward to sharing this with you in our next report in July 2023.
Next month April 2023, we will mark the one-year anniversary of our monthly Medication Maintenance Programme. The programme is highly valued, providing the poorest individuals in communities with free regular blood pressure checks and medication supplies, and some specialist investigations where required. We plan to include diabetes monitoring this year.
We continue to provide more small interest free loans to assist individuals with small scale trading and subsistence farming.
Once again, thank you so much for your continued support in improving the health and wellbeing of poor communities in rural South east Nigeria.
