MEDICAL OUTREACHES
Poor people find it difficult to access medical care due to cost of drugs and treatment, as well as distance to health facilities. In certain instances, patients travel over 25 kilometres to access medicare.

While we support advocacy efforts aimed at making governments guarantee universal access to healthcare for all their citizens, we understand that in the interim countless number of poor people die from preventable diseases.

So, we go to the remotest, hard-to-reach communitiesto bring succor to the most-in-need. Our Free Eye-Care Outreach has been a phenomenal success.  Over 20, 000 eye tests have been conducted, 5, 477 persons have been fitted with spectacles, while 35 minor operations (to remove cataract) have been performed. Below are some of our activity pictures:
