Foundation extends free medicare to Anambra

A non-governmen­tal organisation, Nnogha-Ifeoma Okeke Foundation (NIOF), on Monday, at Mbanagu Otolo Nnewi community in Anambra State, organised a free healthcare delivery ser­vice to the people of Nnewi and its environs.
The medical outreach, which was conducted by a team of medical experts led by the Chief Medical Director of Eastern Nigeria Medical Centre, Dr Chris Obidigbo, covered diagno­sis and treatment of health issues, ranging from dental problems, surgery, and gen­eral health Issues.
In her opening remark during the event, the ex­ecutive director of the foundation, Mrs. Ifeoma Okeke, said the foundation was setup to immortalise her late husband, Nnogha Okeke, whom she described as humane and caring, and an embodiment of charity, especially for the less privi­leged in the society.
She said that the founda­tion was basically set up to care for the weak, vulnera­ble and widows, adding that the reason the foundation came to being was to im­mortalise her late husband by spreading the work of love.
“We have organised free medical services at Enugu State early this year. Today, we are in Anambra State, and we hope to do this in other states in the South East later.
