Restore sight to 200 villagers in rural Nigeria

Hello Everyone

 

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.
