WHEN IN NEED FOUNDATION (WIN)
MEDICAL MISSION TO NIGERIA – APRIL 2018
Website: www.winfound.org Email: email@example.com www.facebook.com/winfound
Over the past four years, the When in Need Foundation has taken several medical missions to the most rural areas of Nigeria. While these trips had specific focuses, i.e. delivering Malaria medications for example, what we’ve learned is that whenever a doctor is in the area, people from multiple communities come to receive even the most basic of checkups and treatments.
In April 2018, we head back to Nigeria to visit three separate rural communities with an estimated population of 600,000+ individuals. Ondo State has a population of approximately 3.5 million people. The primary focus of this trip is to provide eye examinations for 15,000 children, women and community members and up to 5000 pairs of glasses.

Additionally, we are bringing doctors who can give regular examinations on various medical conditions. As diabetes, high blood pressure and diarrhea are some of the major issues Nigerians face, we are in need of various basic supplies. As our friends, business partners and fellow community members, we are asking for your help. Attached is a list of items we need. Anything you can donate or help us obtain would be extremely appreciated.

An estimated 100 million Nigerians are infected every year with malaria; 300,000 of them die. All but three percent of the population that live in the highlands of Nigeria are at risk of contracting the dread mosquito-born disease.
The When In Need (WIN) Foundation is committed to the fight against malaria in Nigeria, our homeland, and we invite you to join us. Our goal is to save the lives of the afflicted and build a malaria-free tomorrow for this generation.
Please join us to support the cause!
