Construction of a medical clinic in the rural area Obiti in Ohaji-Egbema, Nigeria

Requested by

Holy Family Sisters of the Needy

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

We are trying to help the poor peasant farmers in an area called Obiti in Ohaji-Egbema. These peasant have no awareness of medical treatment and they depend on locally made concoctions when they are sick while some enlightened travel about 2 miles to reach the “local” clinic – receiving a medical check. Many of the locals die prematurely due to inadequate medical care. The surrounding villages Umuapu and Awara do not have access to a clinic neither.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our project is building a clinic/hospital and it will help them to have access to medical care anytime especially in emergency cases when they cannot travel far in search of treatment. The presence of the clinic will create awareness for the need of routine check among them and prevent them from being ignorant of their health status so as to seek for medical attention when necessary.

The clinic there will also prevent untimely deaths of the peasants and also create job opportunities and training of auxiliary nurses.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Other people can partner with us by funding the project or by offerings gifts in-kind.

Please detail the resources that you need.

US$40,000 for building the clinic.

Hospital equipments like beds, tables, forceps, scan machine. Equipments for hematology, chemistry analyzers, autoclave etc. are also needed.
