Our colleagues in Nigeria went one better by partnering with Dunia Hospital in the Agege area of Lagos State to provide free medical care. Yes, free medical care! Mercy and compassion in action. This rather unique opportunity for free medical care ran from the 28th of September 2019 till the 31st of October 2019. Included in this package were surgical procedures like hernia repair, removal of skin lesions like lipoma, ganglion, and removal of the appendix. Others include medical checks like blood pressure measurement and measurements of weight, height, and body mass index (BMI). The service was well received by the locals many of whom have no access to affordable good medical service. CHM Nigeria on their part in making this service available was praised by many who were privileged enough to benefit from it and also by others including those in the Muslim community who recognised the immense value of the service provided.
Laudable services like this are very few and far between in Nigeria and that is why this was such a unique opportunity for the masses to access good and free healthcare. The care was coordinated by Pastor Shola Adebayo, the irrepressible National Prayer Coordinator of CHM Nigeria whose visionary idea created this opportunity. Our sincere gratitude goes to the management of Dunia Hospital under the able leadership of its charismatic, kind-hearted and inspirational medical director Dr Olalekan Dawodu who generously provided the medical facilities for the free medical care. We however, reserve our utmost gratitude to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, to whom all praise and honour be and we hasten to add that this was His doing and it is marvellous in our eyes (Psalm 118:23 paraphrased)
