A U.S.-based non-profit medical outfit, Open Hands Amazing Charitable, has pledged to carry out medical outreach programmes in Nigeria to bolster healthcare delivery in the country.
The Founder of the organisation, Dr. Magdalene Nwaka, in a statement on Saturday, said that necessary measures had been put in place to ensure the success of the outreach on Oct. 9.
The Organisation, based in New York and owned by Nigerians, is a non-profit medical outfit that seeks to promote effective healthcare services in Nigeria.
“The medical outreaches are part of our philanthropic gestures with the support of Dr. Josephine Ewere and Dr. Arinzechukwuemeka Agada, who are Nigerian medical Doctors based in New York, USA.
“We have hosted the first of its kind in Ibuzor, Delta State, and we are set to commence another medical outreach in Egede, Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State.
“This is to further support the Federal Government’s efforts aimed at tackling health challenges in the country, by reaching the unreached at the point of their needs.
“Our goal is to enable people, who need medical care, to be taken care of and also be able to access drugs that are hard to come by in recent times,” Nwaka said.
She noted that the organisation had also put measures in place to hold similar medical aid programmes in Lagos and Akuma, in Delta before the end of 2021.
The great philanthropists of our time, Chief Dr. Magdalene Nwaka and her caring husband, Chief Dr. Aloysius, together with Chief Dr. Josephine Ewere represent living saints here on Earth. They have gone so far as to ensure good healthy living for many Nigerians both in and outside the country and now they want to hold the highest medical outreach in the country again which many prominent Nigerian politicians fail to host to ensure the good health of Nigerians.
They are qualified to be given very big national awards by the Nigerian Government because they are helping the Government by doing what they couldn’t do. They deserve such accolades from the Nigerian Government to boost their momentum and encourage them to do more and also to encourage many wealthy Nigerians to emulate them.
