ABA—The Oganiru Ndigbo Foundation, other wise known as Igboville, has concluded plans to offer free medical services to residents of Aba, Abia State, during this Christmas season.
To this end, 15 medical personnel from different areas of specialisation are expected to participate in the free medical service.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen in Enugu Monday, Chairman of Enyimba Retreat Committee of the group, John Okiyi Kalu, said patients with surgical cases or requiring long -term care would be referred to Abia State University Teaching Hospital, Aba, with generous support from the medical mission team, led by United Kingdom-based Dr Chin Akano.
Kalu, however, said that medical personnel from other parts of Nigeria and the Igbo in Diaspora would take part in the programme which would includ free medical consultancy as well as free drugs, optical frames, dental health support services, free diagnosis and blood pressure checks among others.
Kalu also said that the medical mission was part of activities lined up by the number one online Igbo group, made up of thousands of professionals from across the globe.
