Residents of Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory Council FCT, Abuja, have benefited from free medical services offered by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) Federal Capital Territory Chapter.

The two-day free medical outreach, which took place at Dabibakon Primary Health Center Kwali, was part of the association’s activities to kick off its Annual General Meeting.

The Chairman of the NMA, FCT branch, Dr. Enema Amodu, stated during the flag-off event that the goal is to provide medical services to underserved communities as a way of giving back to society.

“We have assembled in large numbers to provide specialist treatment and service to indigenous peoples of the society. Instead of going to cities, we have chosen remote areas where health care is scarce and people are unable to access or afford medical services.” Dr. Amodu was the first to speak.

He also mentioned that monies were raised to deliver humanitarian services from the earnings of the association’s contributions and donations from partners.

“We tried to help as many people as we could.

We have received help from the Chairman of the Kwali Area Council, Diagnostic, partners, and member contributions to raise monies to ensure that such meds and consumables are available,” he stated.

Surgical operations, Ear Node and Throat, ENT, services, chemistry, ophthalmology, pathology, general surgery services, and all types of medical expert services as needed are among the services provided, according to him.

Concerned about the speed and number of cases of cholera in the FCT, the Chairman emphasized the necessity for the government, medical specialists, and other stakeholders to demonstrate political will.

“Like what we’re doing here, this will go a long way toward solving the problem of cholera transmission. The supply of clean water, sanitary facilities, and community awareness programs are critical to halting the spread of the disease.” He went on to say.

Mrs. Esther Simiri, a nurse and midwife who spoke on behalf of the Matron of Dabibakon Primary Health Center Kwali, praised members of the organization for their compassion in providing inhabitants of the areas with free medical aid.

She, on the other hand, bemoaned the center’s dilapidated status and the lack of medical staff for a population of roughly 100 people who visit the Health Center every day, and pleaded for help with repairs and increased manpower to care for the community’s citizens.

Residents who spoke with Voice of Nigeria expressed gratitude and delight at the NMA’s humanitarian gesture, and called for further medical interventions.

The Dabibakon Primary Health Center Kwali, which employs approximately twenty-four medical personnel, serves six communities: Da Bako, Checheyi, Bobota Peyo, and Leleyi, with an average of a hundred patients visiting the facility each day for medical treatment.
