Medically, the human organism is designed for natural evolution that is to create, maintain and regenerate natural health and well-being permanently but if human ignore some important cues, the outcome lead to sad reality.

Speaking on the need for the outreach, the Team Lead/Liaison Officer Ms. Hafsat Iyabo Inuwa said the project is timely at a time when the world is battling different and serious health issues, most especially Covid-19, Lassa fever and the likes.

Hence taking the outreach to them would help to enhance healthy life of the beneficiaries”, the team lead said.

We would be screening the residents on Tuberculosis and HIV/AID and additionally, there is plan to conduct free vaccination for Rota virus, Measles as well as Covid-19.”
