Bonny, River States, Nigeria
We Care Missions volunteers converged in Bonny kingdom to provide free medical care to villagers in the midst of heavy rains, fuel scarcity, and political tensions over recent elections. We thank God for his faithfulness, mercy and protection as we travel to these remote regions of the world. We are especially grateful for you, our partner for your prayers and financial support for these medical outreaches. Your continued support is enabling the success of this ministry’s programs.
According to the World Health Organization (www.who.int), about 2 billion people across the world have no access to lifesaving medicines and some families save money for years just to be able to see a doctor or a specialist. The greatest tragedy is that millions die or suffer needlessly from illnesses that can be so easily avoided. So, we are very grateful and appreciative of the opportunity you have afforded us to bring hope and healing to the people of this community.
Our services ranged from general consultation for diagnoses, screening and providing treatment for diabetes and hypertension; weight management, dentistry, screening and providing treatment for diseases of the eye – glaucoma, cataracts, and ptyregium, visual acuity. Because of you, we are making a difference in peoples’ lives, one person at a time!
All our shipped medicines and supplies arrived safely and on time to the mission site. This year, we shipped everything through a clearing agent and did not have to go through delays and confiscation of shipment by the customs.
Fuel scarcity caused delay in getting to mission site and we were only able to provide 4 days of care instead of the usual 5 days.
Because of you, we are reaching more people with the love of God in practical ways through our mission’s outreach program in this part of the world. We are grateful for your partnership and pray for continued blessings for you, families, and your ministries.
Thank you again for your support in prayers and financial gift. We truly appreciate your continued support of our mission to provide free medical care for the poor in these rural villages in Nigeria.
