No fewer than 3,000 people in Kuje area of Abuja benefitted from a medical mission embarked upon by popular NGO, When In Need Foundation (W.I.N) recently.
Several individuals were treated for various medical conditions such as malaria, peptic ulcers, hypertension, diabetes, respiratory, urinary tract infections, glaucoma, and cataract.
The mission which was held at Chibiri Primary School, Kuje and spearheaded by WIN’s team of doctors, nurses, optometrists and volunteers was a resounding success as several attendees who received free medical services thanked the organization for their hard work and looked forward to their return in the near future.
When In Need’s CEO, Dr. Chetachi Ecton stressed that WIN’s relentless commitment remains to saving and transforming lives, creating impact in the lives of women, children and some of the most vulnerable people in the society.
According to Dr. Chetachi; “One of the greatest gifts we can bestow on others is lending a helping hand, encouraging them, listening to their needs, energizing and reaching out to them through acts of selfless service. This inspired When In Need Foundation’s team to journey to Kuje, 40 km southwest of Abuja, the Capital of Nigeria on Saturday, to embark on a free medical mission in the community,”
“At the center of the organization’s focus is educating the less privileged children especially the girl child, combating malaria, high blood pressure, diabetes, eye impediments, common illnesses and diseases, women empowerment, community development and agriculture empowerment,” she added.
Dr Ecton encouraged the general public to to be part of spreading love, lending a helping hand to those in need and treating people with warmth, respect and kindness.
In her words; “Together, we can change the world with a heart full of love, ears open to listen and hands willing to help.”
