The Mbaise USA Inc. 2019 Medical Mission has been a huge success, going by updates coming directly from the field by the Medical Director of the Mission, Dr. Adanze Aguwa MD.
Six communities in the three local government areas of Mbaise, Imo State, have benefited from this year’s medical outreach (April 29th to May 4, 2019), which, as has been the annual practice, is meant to benefit the less privileged in the society.
The communities are Eziudo and Onicha in Ezinihitte Local Government Area; Ogbe and Obohia in Ahiazu Local Government Area, and Nguru Nweke and Nguru Nwenkwo in Aboh Local Government Area.
According to Dr. Agunze, more than 30 cataract surgeries and 50 minor surgeries have been performed as at the last update while over 2000 reading and prescription glasses have been dispensed.
She also confirmed that primary care services for people from the targeted communities have been provided and, as expected, all round joy has greeted their interventions as hope has been restored to the otherwise hopeless and help has come to many who may never have had access to the quality services that the Medical Mission has brought to the people of the communities.
She thanked all the donors, partners and stakeholders who have made the 2019 Mission possible and as successful as it has turned out to be, while assuring that subsequent ones will be far better and more far-reaching than this year’s.
