Dear Family and Friends

 

I hope you are well and looking forward to Spring when it arrives.

 

With the economic crisis in Nigeria increasingly getting very bleak month by month, the need for basic health care and financial support for the poorest in rural communities is growing at a disturbing rate.

 

More people are wanting the small interest free loans for small scale trading and farming activities to support their families, and some recipients of loans are struggling to make agreed repayments.  

 

We are reaching more people with our monthly Medication Maintenance Programme, providing free regular blood pressure and diabetes checks and medication supplies.  A few people that have early signs of cataract in their eyes are being monitored.

 

We have started to plan for our annual two-day Medical Outreach which will take place end of December 2024/early January 2025. We are expecting a larger than usual crowd because of the economic crisis and this will require a lot of financial and human resources.

 

We remain huge grateful for your continued support for our programme to improve the health and wellbeing of poor communities in rural Southeast Nigeria.
