2019 Medical Mission to Warrake

Dear Friends of Wecare Missions,

On behalf of our patients, I want to thank you for your dedication and spirit of giving.  I pray for blessings on you and yours.  You made a difference in these peoples lives and hope you will continue to work with Wecare Missions in the future for more impact. 

Wecare Missions conducted Mission trip to Warrake, a village in the mid-western area of Edo State.  Three volunteers travelled from USA to meet other local volunteers from various parts of Nigeria.

Patients were screened for diabetes, hypertension, malaria, and HIV/Aids during medical consultation. Over 2000 Adult patients were seen and 7797 prescription filled at no cost to the patient.  548 patients were screened at the eye clinic for visions screening and corrections; 418 received single vision glasses, 89 received refracted prescription glasses (mainly school age children) and 9 senior citizens.  Cataract/ Pteregium surgeries were conducted on 47 patients and out of these, 3 patients ages 7, 16, and 19 were able to start or resume their education as a result of this surgery to restore vision.  The impact of these surgeries without doubt is tremendous as these children would have been unable to fed for themselves in the future.  Additionally, 1 in 4 adults seen were diagnosed hypertensive, prevalence of malaria – over 600 adults & children tested positive for the malaria parasite, Ulcer in both adults and children was rampant with skin diseases and infections mostly in children.
