How we touched the lives of the needy in Nigeria

In this interview with Dr. Chetachi Nwoga-Ecton, Founder and CEO, and Dr. George Onuorah, Director of Media and Projects, of the When In Need (WIN) Foundation they explained the challenges and joy derived from seeing the  smiles on the less-privileged in Nigeria during WIN’s April 2017 Mission of Mercy.

From April 27 – 29, 2017, the When In Need Foundation made a Mission of Mercy (MOM) to Ideato Imo state Nigeria. This particular medical mission was inspired by a letter received from a community in Ideato South in Imo State Nigeria. Ideato south has an estimated population of 550,000. Our investigation revealed that this community has been greatly deprived of accessible healthcare, general sustainable development, children’s education and women/youth empowerment. This deplorable state of healthcare has claimed the lives of many in this community.

The April mission was supported by a team of family physicians, ophthalmologists, pharmacists, nurses and several other public health professionals.  During the mission, attended to over 6,000 adults and children. Free services were performed including physical and ophthalmic examinations; provision of education and treatments for multiple ailments including hypertension, diabetes, cholera, malaria and typhoid fever; provision of  free reading and distance glasses for at least 4,500 people; and offered preventative health education to reduce the prevalence of communicable diseases.
