DOAM Foundation Offers Free Medical Outreach in Imo Community


Daniel Ogechi Akujobi Foundation, recently, commemorated the 2023 World Malaria Day with a two-day free medical outreach, held at Primary Health Center, Amaimo Community, Imo State, with the objective of providing solutions to the rampant health cases prevalent among the less privileged.

With the theme, ‘Time to Deliver Zero Malaria: Invest, Innovate, Implement’, saw beneficiaries having a one-on-one session with trained medical personnel.

The outreach which focused on diagnosis and treatment of blood sugar, blood pressure, malaria, typhoid and Urinary Tract Infection ( UTI), impacted  about 500 people including children, youths and the aged.

It was supported by Lifeback Pharmacy and Stores.

In her remarks, the  foundation’s Health Programme Officer, Catherine Olukotun, stated stated that it was also aimed at providing free healthcare check-up as a preventive measure towards offering prompt intervention for the less privileged in indigent communities.

According to her, “access to quality healthcare should be a basic human right.The foundation has remained committed in touching lives of the less privileged children, youth and the aged, by providing them with essential health care services in different communities over the past 16 years and still counting”.

She expressed delight about the high turnout of indigenes  during the medical outreach activities saying that, “what we observed is that a lot of people are not going for medical checkups due to financial challenges. Opportunities like this offer them hope and keep them alive.”

Olukotun appealed to well-meaning Nigerians to continue to partner with the foundation so as to provide quality healthcare services in their communities and put smiles on the faces of the less privileged.

Dr. Victor Okere stated that the foundation is offering  a comprehensive health care service to ensure that the beneficiaries receive the care and support they need for a healthy and fulfilling life and achieving some part of its mission.

During the two-day programme,  beneficiaries with different health challenges were diagnosed and treated while those that needed to re-visit the clinic, were rescheduled for further check on their blood sugar.

Proper arrangement were also made for the treatment of malaria, indigestion, diabetes and vitamin deficiencies,  through the provision of anti-malaria, antacid, anti-diabetic, multivitamins, analgesics, among others.
