As a member of the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International, we were able to honor our patron by performing many medical outreaches recently.
The VMC Lagos Chapter worked with with the’ Girls in Charge Foundation’ for a special outreach to teenage girls in Okoagbon-Iwaya. This is a well-known slum area in Lagos, Nigeria. The girls were taught about personal hygiene and how to perform a self-breast examination. They attended lectures on the prevention of sexual abuse and mind management (mental health). The mothers and widows in the community were also not left out, as they also benefited from the free medical services provided by the team.
The VMC Maiduguri Chapter offered free eye screening and prescription glasses to many of those with eye-related problems in Kumshe Community. VMC members of Christ Embassy UK visited Sahara Residential Care home for people with learning difficulties, autism, and complex medical needs.
