Restore sight to 200 villagers in rural Nigeria – Project ID 44482
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.
Take care and keep safe.
