By Denen AchussahThe Comfort Ngumimi Jebe Foundation (CNJF) has reached out to the Gbonko community, a suburb of Makurdi, the Benue State capital with medical outreach.
Made possible in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Makurdi, Sheila Tivlumun, the Acting Administrative Officer, CNJF, said the choice of Gbonko is out of love for dozens of the people of need in the community.
Sheila noted that it was something pleasing to put smiles on the faces of the people, especially in this yuletide.
Dozens of women, youth and the aged and children turned out for the outreach.
On her part, Rotary Club of Makurdi President, Joyce Tarkaa, said it is exciting giving helping hand to those in need.
“Rotary is all about service; to save life. And if we are able to help those in need, then we are doing the right thing.
“We are here because Ngumimi Foundation brought us to this community to serve,” she said.
The team took medical consumables, providing medical services including tests for malaria, HIV/AIDS, pregnancy test and made referrals. The community also benefitted non-food consumables such as clothing.
There were also talks on basic hygiene and protection during the harmattan season. The locals were also encouraged to always visit the hospital for medical check up.
