The Chairman of Abi Local Government Council Hon Mrs Edith Amadi has commended the Global Hands Medical Foundation for its weeklong free medical outreach in Abi Local Government Area.
Hon Amadi gave the commendation recently in Itigidi, the council headquarters while flagging off the free medical outreach exercise embarked upon by the Global Hands Medical Foundation in collaboration with the Niger Delta Development Commission and the Abi Local Government Council.
The Chairman who was visibly enthused by the outreach remarked that she was pleased with GHMF for deeming it necessary to visit Abi to provide free medical services to the rural dwellers, thereby helping to complement government’s efforts and initial resolve to provide qualitative and accessible healthcare to its citizenry.
She stressed that the council was not resting on its oars towards ensuring that qualitative and effective health care remained obtainable in health facilities across the local government area while calling on the people to always avail themselves of every opportunity to attend to their personal health and also massively participating in the free medical exercise.
The GHMF which is comprised of 65 volunteers made up of Doctors, Pharmacists, Nurses, and Laboratory Scientists would be performing a weeklong free consultation and general surgeries as well as administering corresponding medication to women, men and children from villages and clans of Abi at the Eja Memorial Joint Hospital Itigidi.
The exercise which commenced on Monday 18th August is expected to end on Saturday 23rd August, 2014.
